Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Once you have paid a deposit, the general presumption is that no other viewings can be held as this defeats the purpose of the deposit so I am unsure as to why they are still holding viewings.
I would push for the tenancy agreement to be drafted quickly so you can sign and enter into the agreement. Remember, you showed your commitment to the landlord by paying a holding deposit to the property so if the estate agents let the property elsewhere - I would not let this go and consider raising a formal complaint to 1) The property ombudsmen and 2) The landlord
I hope it will not come to this but do keep that in mind should the worst case scenario occur.
I hope this helps and please leave positive feedback. If I can assist with anything else, please do let me know.
So as instructed, you can raise this with the property ombudsmen. Further information can be found here - https://www.tpos.co.uk/consumers/how-to-make-a-complaint
