Present tenants are due to leave in 6 weeks after giving me written notice. We are on good terms and they have agreed to me showing the property this weekend. I have 2 prospective tenants, both very keen to get the property.
If one of them definitely says yes this weekend, how can I secure the deal? Can I take a holding deposit,( non refundable?), to guarantee that they wont drop out of the deal nearer the date. Is there a form on here for that?
