Hi, just looking for some advice really, this is my first time using OpenRent.
I had a prospective tenant submit a deposit immediately after contacting me. They hadn’t arranged a viewing or even seen an online video.
I declined the deposit and said they should really see the place, at least online, first. So I sent them a video and they still want to take it. To be honest, the video isn’t great and it doesn’t look as good as it normally does - current tenants have a lot of stuff. So I expected some questions. But no, they’re still keen.
Has anyone experienced this? Tenant not interested at all in seeing the place and VERY keen. They’re living with their parents and said they’ve been looking at the building where my flat is for a while - hense why they’re so keen. But I don’t think properties in the building are that rare. This all seems a little funny to me. Not sure I’d rent anywhere, and even submit a deposit, without seeing the place or even speaking to the landlord.
Anyone got any experience of this?
