Just under a year ago my husband got a promotion that required us to move 300 miles to Peterborough. We had to quickly find a house with two babies of 2 months and 17 months. One of the properties we chose to view was one on northwoods books. We got there and waited at the agreed appointment time and no one appeared. We rang them and were told we were supposed to confirm on the morning of viewing (by a very rude staff member!)This was news to us but we stupidly agreed to
a second attempt at viewing. The property was ok and we were in a hurry ( 3 weeks before a relocation with two young babies!).
We gave a deposit and filled in all the paperwork and went back to Devon to pack. Got a phone call saying we needed a guarantor which we thought strange as this was our 4th rental property and hadn\'t needed one previously but my dad agreed to do it regardless.
2 weeks prior to our move we get a call saying the house had been given to someone else. We were never told that a deposit and admin fee didn\'t guarentee the property to be ours! Being 300 miles away it wasn\'t so easy as to simply view another property and take that instead! We therefore blindly had to move blindly to Peterborough, all our belongings in storage and effectively homeless.......still with two children under 18 months. We did find a property with brookdale and didn\'t even need a guarentor!!! To top it off the staff are rude! Avoid NORTHWOOD at all costs!!!!
