Rent in advance
Almost all partner landlords in Devon Home Choice require successful applicants to pay rent in advance. This could be up to 8 weeks rent regardless of whether you have your rent covered by Housing Benefit.
Please think about saving to cover the rent in advance needed as soon as possible in case you are offered a property. You could have an offer withdrawn if you cannot provide the rent in advance.
