Having a bit of an issue with a letting agency and wondering if anyone has some advice or experienced anything similar. Me and my boyfriend had a viewing for a house last Thursday and before we left we said we wanted the house. We were told we had to complete an application form each, with bank/reference/employment details etc. and submit it to the letting agency for them to pass to the landlord to review – We submitted applications within an hour of viewing. Apparently once the house is let, the landlord will be dealing with everything directly so sounded fair enough to check people out beforehand.
However, I’ve been calling to see how things are moving along and was told that they’ve had a couple of applicants and the landlord is still looking through them and that a few had already been unsuccessful as they were unsuitable so we are still in the running to have the house.
Tomorrow it will have been a week since our viewing, submitting applications and saying we wanted the house. Has anyone else experienced this weird process before or are we being fobbed off?
Getting really impatient and ideally we’d like to know either way as we could be looking at other properties, especially as we are pushed for time.
