Well, how PK Sales & Lettings managed their lot with me and the six other people I was supposed to move in with, I don't know. First, the day before we were meant to move in, the agency told us that there was another agency on the case, that also had a group of people ready to move in the next day (fair enough, landlord's fault - not agency's). The agency reassured us they were going to fight for us and get the landlord to choose us. The next day - the official move-in date - no updates were given to us regarding that situation; instead, it suddenly came to light that some work needed doing in the house before it was safe for us to move in, even though it was the agency/landlord themselves who insisted we move our proposed move-in date 10 days earlier than the date we actually wanted to move in on. Then, 9 days later (after being homeless that entire time because we gave notice to our current place 10 days earlier, as requested), finally hoping to be able to move in after receiving many assurances from the agency that it would be fine, they tell us that it is going to take another 2 - 3 weeks. At this point, we told them we could not wait that long and requested our holding deposit back. Of course, we no longer trusted them to actually be honest with us and wondered whether if we waited 2 - 3 weeks, they would just tell us again that the work was not completed. They sent us our deposit back, and shortly after we saw the house advertised again. One of us called in to request a viewing and ask when the property would be ready to move in to. We were told that it was ready immediately, but only for families, not houseshares. WELL, so it turns out that this whole ordeal we were put through was simply because they were trying to put us off so that we pulled out, because they no longer wanted the house to be a houseshare?! Quite possible by the sounds of it!
The particular agent that we dealt with was really lovely, but unfortunately she was just trying to blag it and hope everything was going to be okay, without taking into consideration the fact that she was playing with seven people's lives. Only yesterday did I finally move in to a new home, after being homeless for two and a half weeks. I had to commute from Brighton all the way to London, pay for a storage unit, couchsurf at friends' places - I don't have to explain to you the distress of being homeless. I would encourage you NOT to deal with PK Sales & Lettings because they do not work in a transparent way, and are not people people. They deal with landlords who are crooks and do not hold them responsible for their actions. Get your act together, PK!
