Dear Marco I hope you are well. I've discussed your comments with my colleague Toby Bailey who dealt with your interest in Freestone Court. Toby explained to you/Anastasia that we needed a deposit to confirm your offer and interest in the property before we formally negotiated with the landlord – this is Leonard Leese's standard process to make an offer to a landlord as a tenant. Payment of a holding deposit is also standard practice for many other established and reputable estate agen ...
