    Is home.co.uk good?

    Their figures often seem to be at odds with Zoopla and so I'm not sure who to believe.

    Is the site any good?

    I'd use Rightmove but the other two seem to have better features for viewing trends in the property market in different areas, etc.

    Thanks

    Never heard of it. Their figures for what?

    The site looks like it was last coded at the turn of the millenium

      To be honest I like retro so I have no issue with that, lol

      And they have good graphs and stats of housing prices in different areas over time, etc ^^

      Also broken down by type of property.

      I'm never totally sure where best to look for such data!

        Hoppimike - do you work for them by any chance lol
        My views are my own - you may not agree with them. I tend say things as I see them and I don't do "political correctness". Just because we may not agree you can still buy me a pint lol

          No

          Although yeah I am being quite positive about this site. I do think the data is fairly thorough but I just can't say how accurate it is or what other sites have similar information.

          To be honest I thought the site was well-known which was why I phrased the thread's title like that!

            It looks to me as if it aggregates data from other sites.
            When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
            Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

            • Vague behavior from letting agent after being acquired
              by Ven
              Hello,

              Question is from tenant, who is renting a room from letting agent.

              Recently, large estate agent group acquired the letting agent group that I signed a tenancy agreement with.


              After acquisition, the letting agent informed us by email that the bank...

              Who or what is named as landlord please? That's the entity you have the contract with.

              I'd want something in writing from landlord before making any changes.

              The whole "change" could be a scam?

              jpkeats raises a good point about the transfer.

              So your old agent has been bought-out/acquired, but are still running the business for the new owners. That's not too unusual.

              The "manage our property independently after acquisition." is a bit odd (they'd be managing...

              It's not recognised as business in their database, as when you enter bank details, your bank can look for it and confirm it matches the information the bank have about the sort code and account number. You can still send the money....

              If the sort code and account number are not recognised, how have you done a bank transfer?

              In the meantime, can you pay them by cheque?

              If you have a fixed term agreement with the landlord you can only break it as provided in the agreement or if the agent is in serious breach. If the agreement is periodic you can break it by giving the appropriate period of notice. If the agreement is of indefinite duration (for example that it endures...

              Hi,

              another topic on this but apologies as i cant find my answer on the other ones.
              My letting agent messed up the check in and check out report. Basically they keep telling me to pay the deposit back without really checking the reports.
              2y ago I had new tenants who moved in...

              yeahremy It sounds as though you don't know how to complain effectively.

              Agents receive many 'complaints' from landlords that are just long and rambling rants about poor service. The agent will generally apologise, say that it won't happen again, and then carry on as normal.

              ...

              Hi,

              yes regarding the scheme but as soon as I raise a complaint by email, which party should launch the official complaint procedure.
              the estate agent is saying I have not requested the complaint form until now.
              Therefore, question is :when we do raise a complaint, this is...

              I'm not sure I understand. Why would the letting agency want 4 months rent free? Is this one of these arrangements where you let the properties to the letting agency and the letting agency then sub-lets the properties to other people?
