This company literally defy belief! After being scammed by them for £1800 we heard nothing from them in 8 months and had no viewings from prospective buyers. They promise the earth and deliver less than nothing. They messed up our original business details on their website, lost our documentation, and when we complained they told us we were behaving unreasonably! RTA is quite an appropriate acronym as they are a MASSIVE car crash for their customers. They have absolutely NO conscience and it is incredible that they are still in business and continue to rip off honest, hard working people. We feel naive and almost ashamed that we believed their slimy, unctuous sales techniques. Do NOT touch them with a barge pole!

I have had identical experiences to lots of people on this forum. A rushed meeting, then a please sign here just so we have your details correct, etc. I was only interested in getting a valuation for my business. Then a couple of days later the business was listed for sale on their site. This was Feb 19. After lots of very aggressive letters from them, they took me to court for £10k but sent the court details to an address which I don't use. I now have to go back to court to try to set aside th ...

The salesman contacted me asking if I wanted to sell my business which I did because it was up for sale with another company so I now believe they had already seen my business up for sale so that was why they contacted me. The salesman told me he had people waiting to buy my business and freehold for over the market price.

Thank you. I didn't realise it had come across like that. I think they took us to court in 2003/2004 and these types of forums weren't around so much so we were unaware that they were doing this on such a massive scale. The judgement went in their favour because we'd signed their form without reading the small print and as a business you're not protected by consumer law which is what needs to change I think. Their sales rep didn't even turn up to court and we still lost. We used a solicitor a ...

As a company we advertised the business on a range of websites which resulted in 250 enquiries. Unfortunately no one was prepared to pay the money that the client wanted to achieve. However, as a company we did our best for the client. The client was aware that we did not work for nothing and yet refused to pay the agreed fee even though we had done the work we had said we would do. We were forced to take legal action and a court stated that the client owed the money. If the clie ...
