I'm in the market looking to lease a commercial warehouse. I saw one warehouse that was listed by two agencies in https://www.realcommercial.com.au/
I approached one agency (agency 1) and they said the property is under offer by a prospective tenant. The other agency (agency 2) - I tried calling them first but they didn't pick my call but returned my call a day later and when I told them I was after that specific warehouse - the guy on the phone told it is available and he even arranged a viewing.
however due to various economic factors based on the t&c of the contract - I withdrew the application. What was projected by the agent as a hot demand warehouse and rushed to get me to accept strict t&cs and non negotiable rent and bond conditions - he is still following up on the phone and email about this property being vacant.
To cross check I called the agency 1 and they said the lease agreement has been signed already and tenants are moving in sooner and the property is no longer available.
Whom should I believe and how do I verify the truth? If the warehouse is still available as agency 2 says, I'm in a better position to negotiate the t&c and lease it from them but I don't want to risk and lose any money due to my ignorance if the agency 2 is playing up with me.
