    I know we don't have to allow viewing but we don't want to be arseholes about it. just they are a really poor company. they advised we give one months notice when we need to give two. they didn't even know when i spoke to them we were already applying for a new property through them. they didn't give us notice of the property bring put on the market and they even sent the contract to our new place to my gfs old addrss in another city .. T


      Would you have any way of proving they said one month? Phone message? Email? Anything?


        Not at all. they told us one month in person when we went in to apply for the new property and over the phone. my girlfriend is livid about it as thy have just been very poor for such a named estate agent


          Presuming the agency are being paid to let the new place you are interested in, it would be in their interest to facilitate a smooth transfer for you. Have you asked them what can be done about this obstacle? After all, the current landlord presumably wants you out for an easy sale so he may be willing to compromise. The new landlord and the agent presumably don't want you going elsewhere, especially if you have been reliable tenants, so there may be some lee way there too.


            Im hoping so. going to give them another call later today and see what they say.

              Just post a new thread, I’ll lock this one for now, then remove it when the new thread gets going.

              Just to be clear (to everyone), here are some reasons why threads with names are edited or deleted.

              I made two separate requests (one direct and one through a referencing company) for a landlord / agent reference for the same tenant at the same address.

              I got two replies two days apart.

              The first said they had always paid within 7 days of the payment date and that there had...

              The underlay is the key.
              At home I use cheap carpet (because of pets) over good underlay.

              by davett
              I've done some searching and I see people asserting that the typical lifetime of a carpet is between 5 and 7 years. My question is, has this been established in court or is it just general knowledge?...

              Let’s be honest, most tenants don’t look after carpets as well as a homeowner. There is no point putting a quality in a rental when you can’t be sure how it will be looked after - a burn or a coffee / wine stain will ruin a decent carpet as well as a cheap one. I go for a bleach cleanable, mid...

              There was nothing about a default in the post I was responding to.
              The post said that there had been a hearing, so if there was a default, it would have to be some kind of procedural issue.
              If you don't turn up to defend a claim, there has to have been some kind of error in notification...

              Most of my carpets in my own home (good quality) are 15+ years old and still, with care, look perfect.

              Asking carpet people how often you need to replace your carpet is like asking a damp proofing installer whether you need damp proofing....

              With respect, the editing has changed the nature of my posts and title and it is not entirely clear to a reader what has and has not been edited. I am not happy with the posts or title as edited being attributed to me. I think the response a couple of posts up demonstrates that the edits have made it...
