I must admit i didn\'t finish buying a property through Haart at Bracknell...because it\'s almost as if they didn\'t want me to buy from them as agents!
My Partner and I were initially extrememly happy with Haart, we went into the branch, someone (who I won\'t name) sat down with us and immediately pulled out a handful of attractive properties within our price range and a handful that were a few pounds worth of saving away. He took our details, arranged a number of viewings and we thought we\'d found the property for us!
We put in an offer, had it accepted and we were well on our way until we found that the lease was soon to expire (or at least would not have enough years for anyone else to get a mortgage on it, presenting us with an issue come re-sale) so we withdrew our offer.
We soon after received a call from our agent asking what the issue was, and after stating that the Lease was too short and too expensive to extend he insisted it wasn\'t and started getting pushy as if he though that we would just fork out the cash to extend the lease?! We withdrew our offer and said that we would like to continue to keep looking with Haart as they\'d been very good so far.
I never got any more phone calls, no more emails with properties and each time I asked for a call back from our agent it fell on Deaf Ears. I\'ve given up on them. Friendly at first then just ignored on a number of occasions!
We bought with Duncan Yeardley Bracknell in the end, was by far the best estate agent out of the 8 or so we spoke to and dealt with.
