TENANT VERIFICATION REQUEST BY HOMEAWAY AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR xxxxxxx
3 STEPS ON HOW TO GET VERIFIED AS A POTENTIAL TENANT
1. The Potential Tenant will deposit 1 month of rent + 2 months security deposit to HomeAway using Bank-to-Bank Wire Transfer. The deposit will remain with HomeAway until the Potential Tenant will meet the Host, inspect the house and takes a decision. The deposit will remain locked with HomeAway and only the Potential Tenant - xxxxxxxxxxxxx - will be able to unlock the funds.
2. After we receive and secure the deposit from the Potential Tenant, HomeAway will guarantee the tenant - xxxxxx - to any Host or Property Manager listed with HomeAway.

The Host involved in this agreement - Christos Christodoulou - will receive a letter of guarantee from HomeAway informing him that HomeAway is in possession of a deposit (1 month of rent + 2 months security deposit) that represents the rent amount established by him regarding the property located at Sürther Straße 101, 50996 Köln .
The Host will be advised to meet and take all measures to complete the rental agreement.
3. The Potential Tenant will meet with the Host and inspect the property personally.
After the Potential Tenant inspects the property he must decide regarding the completion of the rental agreement. The Potential Tenant has two options:
Sign the rental agreement and immediately HomeAway will transfer the deposit to the Host's bank account.
Does not sign the rental agreement and immediately HomeAway will return the deposit (the complete amount € 2.460,00 without retaining any fees) to the Potential Tenant's bank account (return time is no longer than 24 hours after receiving tenant's refund request).
ATTENTION: In both cases HomeAway will not unlock or move the deposit without the tenant's exact instructions. Only the Potential Tenant - xxxxx - can access the funds.
