I am so fed up with estate agents! After living with my grandmother for almost a year, my partner and I finally found a gorgeous house that was ideal for us. We paid the £400 holding fee (extortionate!) and sent off our details for credit checks. A week later, the estate agent informs us that the landlord has asked them to continue advertising as I am unemployed, even though my partner earns more than enough to support us both. In three years, we have tried moving 5 times. Only once has it actually gone through. Sorry for the moan, I'm just so frustrated. I've got no job, no house and I don't know how many more times I can deal with falling in love with a property only for it to fall through after paying hundreds of pounds for it.
