Wanted: Tips on looking for properties

Hi everyone.
I’ve been with a social housing firm for the past 15-16 years and it’s time to move on. Noisy nearly tenants and being a bit closer to work are two reasons for this decision to move.

This will be the first time I’m going to rent with a private landlord. So far I’ve applied for two flats from Open Rent via Right Move and a dozen more from estate agents via RightMove.

I’m hardly having any luck though, the occasional ‘We got your letter an will be in touch soon’ is all I get.

I’m not sure if I’m doing anything wrong on the first message to the agency, a polite post of requesting a viewing.

I was wondering if other renters on here would say that they too don’t get many replies - possibly because lots of people are after the same property?

I note several of the properties I originally enquired about are actually still listed on the websites.

Comments from all are welcome and thanks for checking out my first post :slight_smile:


If still on the website then ask again

Thanks, I will try this
