I’m posting this in hope that other landlords can relate and could provide advice. Some time ago I was contacted by a tenant regarding a property and their manner was incredibly pushy that it really didn’t give me a good feeling so I cancelled the viewing. They contacted me some time later for a different property and at first I didn’t realise it was the same person so I said I’d get back to them but later on I realised who it was. I avoided engaging with them again but they still repeatedly phoned and texted me, and contacted via OpenRent.
Most of you who have been in the rental business long enough most likely know how it feels to get a gut feeling about a person and know that you just wouldn’t want to rent to them. I haven’t formally rejected the person because I know that if I did they would continue to pursue me to try to find out why they were rejected. How would you reject someone like this if they don’t seem to get the message?
