If you are trying to rent a flat or small house to suit the size of your family,
and are in difficulty because you need to find a deposit and / or rent in advance,
LDHH may be able to help with a loan.
But remember we cannot find a flat or house for you - we are not a letting agency!
Very often landlords or their agents will ask for an initial deposit to be held against
possible damage; a month’s rent in advance; and often a fee for the necessary agreement.
This can all add up to several hundred pounds. Even if you feel you can manage the
actual monthly rent being asked, this large sum to spend all at once may be a real
LDHH may able to LEND you this money, interest free, and you can then pay it back
in instalments of a size you can manage - alongside the rent of course payable to
the landlord. Don’t forget living expenses as well, but a typical agreed repayment
to LDHH is £25 a month.
If you would like to explore this possibility, ring our telephone enquiry line on
07717 854889 and leave your contact details, or ask at the Citizens’ Advice Bureau
at 41 Eastgate, Louth. Remember at LDHH we do not have an office to visit, and a
phone enquiry may not be answered immediately as we do not have permanent staff.
