Agent was late for viewing. Courteous young lady showed me a flat and told me a tale of woe regarding someone who was to take the property but ultimately couldn\'t. The landlord was eager for a re-let a.s.a.p. and I made an offer which she thought would be fine. She requested my details and offered her opinion (this agent was a trainee, I would add) that I wouldn\'t meet Dexters criteria due to being self-employed without accounts. However, she would put my offer forward but would check with her office first re my suitability.
I heard no more and when I called into their office 2 days later the staff said they would ask the young lady if there was any progress. I heard no more and after 10 days I gave up and went on to find another let through a local independent agent.
