I fucking hate this. It's the fucking 21st century, why the fuck can't it be easier to browse potential lets with plenty of images and video? Why do all the landlords have to be complete fucking cunts? Why do they all have stupid and unreasonable requirements?

I should just fucking give up and live in my parents house and survive on the dole until I die.
Expand all images.

Have you considered arranging visits to potential accommodations? I know this is /101/ and solutions to problems are discouraged, but people have been finding and viewing properties for hundreds of years. It's not fucking hard.

I might have laughed, if I had remembered how.

The properties available are shit, so the lack of photos (or useful photos) is to disguise this. If they can get you to actually view it in person (along with dozens of other people also looking) then they can pressure you into making a bid for fear of losing out.

Sorry, renting is just shit. I'd live with my parents if they lived in London and not in the middle of bumfuck nowhere. It would be better quality accommodation and cheaper.

It's what I've been doing all fucking day. I arranged five viewings, they were all shite and that was several hours of my life wasted just because some greedy cunts are too dishonest to give a full profile of what they want to let out. Twats. Makes you want to become a communist so at least you don't have to put up buy-to-let shitpumps while you're queuing for potatoes and millet.

What they want to let out probably wouldn't meet health and safety standards. They could be done if they posted the evidence online.

Not him, but I've been trying to view properties for the last fortnights, and the viewings keep getting cancelled. On the upside, yesterday evening I somehow found myself viewing a flat described as "spacious" which actually was.

Arrange for a viewing, and if you feel the landlord had lied in the ad, take a quick shit in one of the rooms when nobody is looking, and quickly get out. Make sure you taunt them and call them from payphones, telling them that you will be back to make sure you diarrhoea all over the place the next time they lie.

I had someone try and persuade me a flat was worth £530/month of my money last week. I'm fairly sure the room I stayed in at a Travelodge was bigger. Where the fuck does the landlord think he is, London?

Have you tried talking to them over phone and asking for more pictures?

It might be better going through a letting agent, but it would be slightly more expensive.

I've had a good experience from spareroom.co.uk if you're just looking for a single room.

If you respond to that kind of snake oil tactic you deserve everything you get.
