Please anyone do you have any advice?

Basically I'll start from the beginning, 2 weeks ago we went to view a property on Alderman Close, Beeston through the agency Your Move. Within a minute of viewing we drove to Your Move, filled in the application paid fees. A few days later credit checks came back fine, references fine and the landlord agreed to rent to us. Your Move called me and said we have been accepted the property move in date will be on the 12th of September. I asked could the landlord turn around in the meantime and say no and she replied, no he can't the property is agreed to you. A week down the line I get a call today saying the landlord's called Your Move and is now renting the property to someone else. We are about packed ready to go and now we hear this. We are devastated. Is this allowed? Is there anything I can do? The agency are not particularly keen to help me. I just need some advice on this matter. Regards.

  • Did both you and your landlord sign a tenancy agreement? I'd have though that once the tenancy agreement is signed by both parties, it becomes binding on both you and the landlord.

  • Well that's the problem you see, the agency said we sign on the day we get the keys the move in date. Otherwise I would of signed strait away but they said not until the 12th.

  • Have a look at what professional bodies they are associated with (property ombudsman, ARLA etc - they should be listed on their website), and give them a call. If they aren't associated with any, call trading standards. As far as I can see, they made a verbal contract with you. If nothing else, you should be able to get any fees back. Sounds like very bad practice from Your Move!
