      Thanks Nick. Loot always used to be wonderful when advertising was free - it just goes to show the truth of the old saying: 'you don't get what you pay for'!

        you have to be careful with Gumtree.. I had about 12 replies to my ad saying the property was "exactly what they were looking for"... as soon as I sent an application pack I never heard from them again..... or there were those that wanted to send me 6 months rent upfront without even seeing the place in an attempt to get out of the application stage! ... then they wanted money back etc!! I have been able to tick the box of every scam known to renting just by advertising on gumtree!!!

                perhaps these problems are location based. In London I've used gumtree to find 10 tenants in the last 12 months (also using applications) without experiencing any of these problems. as gumtree is free lawstudent might find it worth a try

                  I have also used gumtree successfully several times always get a few "chancers" but that happens with Loot and various other sites too.
