Salutory lesson. My son owns the house next door to ours. His letting Agent had agreed a let on the Wednesday. On the following Saturday they had a "viewing day". Eighteen hopefuls visited whilst a rep from the Agent sat in her car to let them in. I asked a couple of them what they were doing. I was told that each of them had paid £80 to view, the promise being that it was immediately available to move in. Nice earner hey!
