    Requesting an Unaccompanied 2nd viewing? 18th May 17 at 1:33 PM
    When viewing houses I tend to find I spend more time and mental energy having to make polite conversation with the EA showing (following) me round and it proves to be a major distraction from the job in hand of actually looking at the property!

    There is now one property that I'm potentially interested in to the point of wanting to arrange a 2nd viewing, would it be unreasonable/unusual/odd to request the viewing be unaccompanied? Just so I can spend a good 15-20 mins in the house (and garden) quietly trying to get a 'feel' for the property and the immediate surroundings?

    This particular property is completely empty following a refurb, has been on the market for a long time, over a year, and is only 100 yards away from the EA's office so it shouldn't be too inconvenient for them to meet me there and then pop back 20 minutes later to see me out and lock up.

    Is it a reasonable request or would I be regarded as a complete oddball?!
