This agent called me when a flat became available for a knock down price in August 2012. The flat was being marketed by another agent for offers in excess of xxxxxx. The agent told me that the vendors had asked them to market the property because the other agent had only got them 3 viewings (e.g they were rubbish) and they wanted a couple grand more than the guided offer price. The day i viewed the property with the agent, the vendors then decided they wanted another couple grand more. In good faith based on the agent \'i said i would find you a good deal\' - I stupidly offered an amount and - big mistake i know- told the agent the most i was willing to pay. He told the vendor who of course accepted the higher offer. The agent said he had to convince the vendor to accept the offer (by the way, the flat is still being marketed for sale by the other agent - the guided price is the same). I was then hounded on an almost daily basis re conveyancing (700GBP more expensive), copy of ID etc. I had a gut feeling that i was paying more for the flat and family opinion confirmed this. I had another viewing and saw the flat needed more work on it so i withdrew my offer. They had the audacity to complain quote \'i will have to deal with the backlash\'. No doubt i wont be hearing from them about any other possible viewings. Everyone i know who has had dealing with Kings have all said - watch out for them.
