We were approached by our agents who have recently begun supporting a single man who has been sofa surfing for the past six years, staying with friends and family. He has most recently been staying with a friend in a one bedroomed flat, but the friend has now expressed his need for our client to leave. Our agents have managed to find him suitable accommodation, but in order to be able to move in he needs some help with the deposit and the admin fee. He does not have any savings and the only possessions he owns are his clothes.
He needed £50 to cover the admin fee and the deposit is £400. We agreed we would send across £200 to help him, £50 for the admin fee and £150 towards the deposit. The landlorad has said that he can pay the remainder of the deposit over the next six months.
