Hi, thank you for having me on this forum.
Before i name any landlord of interest.
Is a normal practice to ask personal questions by landlord i.e. current address while arranging a viewing? Why would landlord need this information if there is a chance the application never be placed? The explanation provided by landlord was something along lines: because i am a landlord >.<
During the conversation with landlord I have said, this is only about viewing at this time - if we are happy with property then we’ll take it further and supply a full application with whatever information are deemed necessary. Conversation was cut off after which received an email saying that my application was rejected on grounds: “Applicant did not want to provide further details.” Also, landlords phone number was marked as private.
To me, this reeks of an scam attempt stopped before it went further but i am interested what you might be thinking about before escalating.
