Facebook or Twitter that I've been in the process of sorting out a new studio. Well I've had a bit of a setback.
Way back in October I found the perfect studio in Grimsby. Well actually Cleethorpes. Massive studio room, entrance reception, kitchen, toilet, main road location. Just what I wanted. I spent a while deciding then went through the long winded process of applying for planning permission for change of use to a photography studio. That in itself was an ordeal with conflicting advice being given to me and the landlord. But that's another tale...
But to cut a long story short, permission was granted and I went back to the estate agent only to be told the property had been let to somebody else! Throughout I was told I was fine and I didn't need to start lease proceedings so I took the agent at his word. Other words I can think of regarding the agent are unprofessional, unethical, misrepresentation along with several others not suitable for a mixed audience!
I obviously won't name the agent in question but they do have a reputation in the area so I should have known better really. But I wasn't going to let a perfect property slip just because I didn't like who was letting it!
Gutted is not the word! But as I said here and here. I can't let it get me down. I think I've just about snapped out of the low spot now and have found somewhere else! It's actually in a better area. Not quite as big, but much nicer. So once again... watch this space!
