Reserving an apartment (and paying the application fee) does NOT automatically mean your application is accepted.

The application fee will only be refunded if the application is rejected based on grounds other than those stated in the qualification criteria.
Once your application has been processed, a contract will be issued. After you have signed the contract and paid the deposit, OurDomain will countersign the contract. Your rental contract is only definite once countersigned by OurDomain. Please note that you need to sign the contract and pay the deposit within 72 hours.
