At first we were very happy about viewing a house that seemed amazing, after putting a bid and a holding deposit down. We didn't hear from them in a few days. then they said we had lost it because someone else got it instead.
2 weeks later they call us and said that we can have the house, so we decided to take it.
We fill in all the forms and our guarantors take days off to do it as we are students. our agent Elliot kept on emailing us and calling us to finish them, when we have everything done. He find outs that the guarantor forms were old, and we have to fill them in again. Otherwise we got our dream house! And as we know Elliot is new for the agency, we are happy we got the house in the end!

Just to clarify, Amanda and Jake were made aware upon putting the deposit down on the first property, that being a 3 bed, that are very sort after at present, that anyone wanting to put an offer down could do so and the best offers would be put to the landlord to choose. This is not normally the case with every property, but for 3 bed properties at present, it is the only fair way to give everyone a chance of getting the property. Amanda and Jake did loose out on this property, but 72 Hours later were notified of a new, different 3 Bed property and were offered first refusal, of which they greatly accepted.
As we outsource our referencing as way of doing thorough checks on our potential tenants for our landlords, forms do have to be updated regularly, in order to comply with legislation. This was rectified immediately, with as minimal disruption and inconvenience as possible. In the end they did get their dream property better than the first one they unfortunately missed out on and moved in happy and on time.
