My partner and I are looking for 2 Bed Flat or small House to rent in Bradford.
We are applying for one in Canal Road, but the rental agent [Walker Singleton] seem to find it impossible to arrange a reference from our guarantor in The Netherlands. They have also been as slow as molasses, taken £100 for the application and then managed to take 2 weeks to work-out that the flat we are interested in was offered to us at the wrong price [£450 vs £500] - which clearly was valuable flat-hunting time, and we wouldn't have made a £40 rail trip to view if we'd been given the correct price.
I will continue with this application for the time being, but am beginning to think that either they are not worth dealing with, or that someone else will get the flat as they are unable to actually arrange our application at any rate of speed.
If anyone here has a Flat/House in Bradford or within 5 or so miles that they would consider renting for approx £450 a month, would you make yourselves known? If it meets our needs I'd rather deal direct with private landlord!
We have several years of references of renting, no missed payments or deposit issues, guarantors and the usual other things. Other terms/conditions can of course be thrashed out!
They are bikes and rabbits involved, but as mentioned before none of this has been an issue in our previous tenancies. We will be both attending the University of Bradford, and therefore will be looking to stay for around 9 months from September 2013.
Thanks so much.
