DP and I got accepted for a rental on Monday. Yay!!! So I paid the deposit yesterday and sent the property manager the receipt like he asked me to and was expecting a phone call today so we could arrange a time to sign the lease etc.
Nope. Nothing. Not even a reply to my email acknowledging that my $900 deposit had been received.
Why is no one as prompt as me?!
Now I have to call him tomorrow to follow up and I hate being the naggy person who follows everything up!

Real estate agents are notoriously bad for this. They always seem to take their sweet time getting back to you about anything. In saying that, we have just moved house on the weekend, and our new agent has been fantastic

In defense of real estate agents most property managers would not have access to log into trust bank accounts so odds are he would have to wait for licensee/accounts person to check daily banking ( some banks take 48 hours) and even though you have receipt we have to see it in our account OR he's a slack *** and there is no excuse and your right and will have to chase him!!!

So I've heard. The stress is honestly making me a little crazy. I just want to sign, move and put my feet up for at least 12 months!

If he doesn't call me by afternoon tea time tomorrow I'm calling him though. Although I only wanted sorted so I know it's ours...would be happy to prolong paying 2 rents!
Speaking of, if our current landlords have said we don't need to pay rent when we leave, how does that get arranged with the real estate agency?

when you leave a rental you pay rent to the day you leave, ( usually the day your notice expires) hand over keys, do outgoing report ( if you can) with agent/landlord and get your bond form signed

Yeh just get something in writing or ask to have your names taken off "just in case" you can still be liable for rent or any damaged caused when the other 2 eventually move
