The owner is full of lies, with no moral integrity. He will value your house very high so that you will get him as an agent. Then, if he can not sell it on the asking price, he will force you to under sell your house.
We were selling our house and buying from Bridges Estate agent in Caversham. When we decided that we are not going to under sell our house and we have decided to rent it out.
He sold the house that we were buying from them to a higher bidder even if our offer has been accepted and we have paid for IFA,Conveyancing and survey. The bank has approved our mortgage and were only asking for a structural survey report and the timber report, we only need 5 days so that the bank will release our mortgage. But the agent decided that he will sell it to the higher bidder regardless. This estate agent only SELL... no rental division, so it was obvious that he will not get any commission from us because we are going to rent our house. Bridges Estate agent in Caversham Reading is practicing and encouraging GAZUMPING! They don't care at all! All they need is commission.
I rate them zero. NO INTEGRITY!
