Reference fee con, 2 applicants at one time!!
Hi I have recently put in an application to rent a property. I was informed it would cost £80 reference fee to process should I be sucessful. I was told there was already an application going through was going through, but there was a chance this potencial tenant they wouldn't pass. The guy from the company told me he was going to view all applicants and consider which one to put through, saying normally its first come first served which I thought was fair. This last week the guy emailed to let me know he was seeking references about me and my partner. Me and my Partner knew our references would come back positive so were hopeful to rent this property. But before all my references could come through the guy telephoned me to say he was sorry to inform me that the original applicants were sucessful as there references had come through before ours. He also said we wouldn't be recieving our £80 fee as they had already started checking our references. This doesn't make sense to me !
