Price has gone up overnight...?

I saw a flat I want to rent, paid the credit check fee last night and took in my application this morning. When I phoned this evening to discuss moving date I was informed that 2 other people had applied through another agent this morning and the landlord had to decide who would get it, and that the flat had been advertised at the wrong amount. It's now £5 more per month, which isn't much, but it's advertised with the other agent for £25 less! Can an agent do this?

  • I'm afraid they can do almost anything! It doesn't seem fair. Can you get the fee back and find something else maybe? Not sure I'd want a landlord like this!
