    Yesterday I went to view some flats for next year and I really liked two of them but one was a definite favourite. I let my first choice know that I'd like to live there and they said the other flatmate (who wasn't at the viewing) would like to meet me before making a decision. But if it turned out for whatever reason I couldn't move in there I would be more than happy to take the other one. My problem is that I'm not sure what to say to them in the mean time as I know that there are other people interested. I really hope I get my first choice but at the same time don't want to miss out on the other one if I don't. Any advice?

    well assuming there's nothing terribly wrong with you there's no reason you should lose out on the other flat but you'll have to accept that if you don't confirm and sign with them asap they might give the flat to someone else in the meantime, you could ask for a few days to consider it/view somewhere else but they might still take a sure option over that

    There's not really much you can do, as they wont hold places for people without deposits normally.
