Very helpful agent when it came to being accepted on the property. Took the £500 holding fee with no problem at all. Was told that taking in all the referencing documents would be the best way to get it done quickly. So that\'s what we did, only to be told we needed more documents, so had to drive 6miles there and back again. Got a break down of all fees and nearly died of shock, came to almost £900( with guarentaur). But we liked the property so would have payed it. Then it went wrong! The landlord had accepted another tenant with an earlier moving in date! After they took our £500 holding fee! We were told by the agent that it would be payed back through BACS, when ringing up and speaking to a rather rude manager I was informed that it wouldn\'t be , that it will be cheque. Have now found a better estate agent that charges half the fees!
What agent could do to change your mind?
Could have been more honest from the start. if a landlord would prefer a different tennat that is their choice. Is their house after all. However we should have been informed, not led on. Really don\'t need the stress being 3zweeks pregnant!
