Please think twice before using these agents!!! We recently attempted to buy a house in WB. House price was agreed. Due to the house having serious issues of damp/electrical and structural issues just to name a few defects, loan company put a retention on property of 5k.

Further issues were detected after we paid for our own full survey; issues with drains and aspestos garage detected, and structral issues detected! We further negotiated and reached an offer we were both happy with. This was then rejected the following day with no sensible reason other than vender now wants more money and two other parties have suddenly come forward with the the asking price!!! So offers were being considered when property was supposed to be sold to us stc!!! So having wasted months of our time, effort and money in getting surveys completed, the sellers decides they want near to the asking price! It seems that Frank INNES feel that this is ok and help facilitate this move by allowing other parties to view house. We were told if we up our offer than then sale with us can proceed!!! This to us was black mail and very poor practice and we stuck to our moral principals and said no, plus the house to us was not worth what they were asking considering the defects. . What really annoys and frustrates us is that we clearly asked Sharon Fretwell at Frank Innes that we would expect the seller within reason to reduce the price if major problems were detected. This was all verbally agreed. We are not even sure if our offer has been put forward to seller as Frank Innes have declined to show us if the final offer has been sent to seller!!!

Another thing which i need to point out is the so called independent financial adviser. We would not advise that you use them or their financial services at countrywide, they work very closely and sit in the same office so how they can can they claim to independent of each other i don't know!!! I have sat in the office and even heard a financial adviser telling the agent what money the buyer is good for!!!

So overall a very bad experience with Frank Innes and we can't believe they can get away with this kind of practice. This practice is illegal in Scotland and it should be here too. We lost £800 pounds, but i know others have lost more using these agents from the reviews we have read.

Another interesting thing to mention house is still on the market!!! What happen to those higher offers i wonder???

My son has just had a similar experience. Be very careful with these people as I feel they are selling to the person who makes them the most money, not just the selling price commission, but extras like mortgage, conveyancing etc. Luckily I managed to contact the seller who confirmed some of my thoughts. Written without prejudice. ...

I'm in exactly the same boat with them! I have children under 5 and have been waiting since 5th January for maintenance to come and replace my leaking radiator! They left me for around 1 week without a boiler over Christmas with my children, we had to stay with family. There excuse it was the festive season" I last heard something 3 weeks ago from countrywide to say that it is due to be replaced the following week. Had to chase them up at the end of that week only to find out the landlord didn' ...

Avoid Frank Innes , Central Avenue like the plague. Continually bad service with lack of communication between team members . No updates from the branch re. viewings. All contact initiated by myself the vendor. The staff were always too busy to give a reply. The phone was more often than not on answer phone. The final straw for us was when eventually 10 months down the line when we had accepted an offer on our property they failed to submit the memorandum of sale to the solicitors. We onl ...

What agent could do to change your mind?
As far as the appointment is concerned, she should have paid attention to basic details. Additionally she should have been courteous and sincere; she should have been 'professional!'
