I spoke to Bridgfords (Nicole) on 31/3/15 to try and arrange a viewing on a property I'd seen on rightmove and zoopla. I asked if the landlord would consider a cat and a dog and they said lets register you with us first and then we can ring the landlord and ask. Hmmm I didn't particularly like that tactic I'd rather they just let me know first. They didn't endear me with the question 'what's your credit rating like' either. I thought, wouldn't they see that if I wanted to pursue the property after seeing it. Anyway, I got a call back and they said the earliest they could arrange me a viewing for this property was Sat 4/4/15 and she said because of the price this property wouldn't be around for long. I thought no well it will be if you can't get viewings arranged earlier than that.

I was keen to see the property so told them I was happy to swop my shift at work so I could make it to the viewing. I then get a call from Tracey at Bridgfords 2/4/14 to state we've had to cancel the appointment we made for you. There's a tenant still in the property and they won't haved moved out by the Sat so could they ring me on Tues 7/4/15 to rearrange another viewing date.

Barefaced liar. I looked at the property again on rightmove later that night to see it suddenly had 'let agreed' on it. I am fuming at the fact that they outrightly messed me about after knowing full well I arranged my work to accommodate for a viewing. I'm so sick of these agents telling lies and wasting my time but hell, when you can't even get to view the properties there's no hope for anyone.

I wish I could contact the landlord and let them know. If I was a landlord trying to let a property and they were doing that with potential tenants I'd go nuts.

How did they end up with 'let agreed' if they couldn't arrange viewings until next week when the tenant would have only just gone. Because you've had viewings that's why. What I don't understand is, why lie to me. Why not just say we have a couple of other viewings already arranged or actually the landlord won't accept a cat and a dog but we couldn't face telling you.....idiots.

I'll never look at any property to buy or rent from Bridgfords now.
