Hi, I am new to the forum, if I put this topic at the wrong place, please correct me.
This is the case, we are new to UK from Hong Kong, we don’t have a job yet because luckily we’ve got enough saving for at least few years living(but still, we’re going to get a job later)
Anyway, we applied for renting a house, the agent receive our holding deposit at 16 Mar, the agreed move in date is 31 Mar.
10 days gone, official agreement still not signed, we did all the reference check process immediately after we receive email from them and the referencing company, it also shown they pass back to agent already 3 days before.
Since we agreed to pay the whole year’s rent in once, the agent said the landlord accept that even we don’t have a job or don’t pass the reference check.
There’s only few days left, we have to order beds/furnitures, appliance, they take at least few days to deliver.
I call the agent yesterday, they tell me to email their manager, still no feed back.
Is this normal in UK? I don’t want to be too harsh on them since I don’t want to build up an image of HK people like complaining but we are really worried.
