Connells at Between Towns Road in Oxford were a nightmare. The Manager was bullying, agressive and dishonest. I found a house I wanted to buy, and I just wanted to port my existing mortgage (as I would have to pay a large penalty to leave it before time). The manager said I had to talk to their mortgage broker. He started taking down lots of personal information, I challenged him and he got very nasty. The manager and the mortgage broker in the same office lied that the seller would only sell to me if I took out a new mortgage with Connells! As if the seller would have any interest in that whatsoever. Needless to say, this was a scam and illegal.
The manager also tried to stop me from checking something about the house that his own seller\'s client\'s solicitor asked me to look into, when it was a legal requirement.
I would say that even if I found the house of my dreams I would never have any dealings with this bunch of crooks.
The agents I was selling my house with were great. They did actually express their disappointment at Connell\'s behaviour!
