Absolutely disgraceful service provided, I suggest avoiding this company like the plague! Had a viewing for a house and didnt get notified that the property had been sold days prior, wasted our time and had to find out ourselves the property had been sold when we checked online again. Short message: Avoid at all costs!

Sorry to hear your story,bit it's an all too often recital of woe and disappointment from 80% of Purplebricks customens. Myself also!!

Tried renting the house through Purplebricks signed us up wurh the first client who showed interest. This was a disastrous tenancy, costing myself and partner over £1800 is losses plus six months of stress and anxiety. STAY AWAY from ...
