Really, really awful experience with this estate agent.
Looking to purchase the property, agreed the price, carried out a survey, several quite large scale issues came up that needed to be looked at and assessed and the sale was progressing as expected. The owner was flexible and all good; getting everything agreed, mortgage in place and arranging the valuation survey and the estate agent decided to put the property back on the market?????? this was 3 weeks from completiton........why?????
Really bad practice. The agent in question is very, very rude, apparenlty has a crystal ball that can see the future - must be seriously broken if he relies on it like he said. He couldnt be further from the truth and is an out and out shark. Our solicitors and also our IFA both left us feedback on how they have never worked with such a bad agent in there whole experience which combined is around 100years and will recommend to future potential clients not to use them and to avoid.
Always expect a few potential hic-ups, but this was seriously wrong. Feel for the vendor as it seems that they are taking the piss and certainly not acting on their best interests. Hope the vendor sees this and manages to get the sale needed.
All i can say is be very. very careful if you are considering using them.
What agent could do to change your mind?
The agent might have other people working for them but the person we used is terrible. Complete shark - rude, arrogant...................con man.
