Three years ago i approached a then YOUNG lettings r us,that had just started out about a house that became available NEAR wynford road area of frome.
I viewed the property with my daughter,mr candy came across very charming,smiling,happy go lucky i liked the property and offered him a "cheque"as a deposit.
His attitude just switched on like a light bulb,"the company only deals in cash"he very abruptly said,stupidly i accepted this,he then arranged to follow me to a cashpoint where i drew out 200 pound,he wrote out a reciept on what looked like a 50p cheap reciept book.
I arranged with him to pay the rest in two days time and move in.
After the weekend i changed my mind as it had a pond,i have a dog and was not sure about the garden,rang candy up tried to arrange a meeting to get 200 pound back.
"no way"he said ,that was for a credit check and you failed miserably,then put the phone down.
I complained to certain estate agent regulators,totally toothless pass the buck merchants and have now accepted i lost the money.
Mr candy is sponsored by his land owner father near mells,mr candy was also prosecuted for running an UN-LICENSED office from home by mendip council,breaking evey single planning regulation in the book.
What agent could do to change your mind?
