Thank you for your prompt reply.
There has been no tenancy agreement as of yet. My friend viewed the property and gave a holding deposit to secure the property subject to all the relevant checks being made by the estate agents. My question is, can the property continue to advertised and shown as available?
Yes it can be. This is because until the contract is signed by both the Landlord and the tenant then either party can pull out.So until signed by both it can be advertised.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
