  • Reply to Has anyone successfully sued an estate agent?
    by Piffy
    I was perhaps fortunate in that my tenant had a good job with the NHS and paid his rent. But on looking at Social Media I realised that he had lied about where he lived in that he had put his parents house down as his address (200 miles away) whereas on social media it showed that the University he...

    I'm a bit late to this thread Claymore, but I was going to tell you to relax. Any time I've agreed a high commission rate, the estate agent has moved heaven & earth to find me a buyer. Any time I've negotiated a lower commission, they do as little as possible.

    Hi

    I had an agent round to value a property - I did have it in mind to go with this particular agency but by the time the guy had left me, I had felt really pressurised to sign up and I am kicking myself that I fell for his patter. All the agents around here are 1% plus VAT but he gave...

    good afternoon,

    Could anyone suggest the easiest (and cheapest preferably) CMP firm Which covers registered agents in Wales? I'm required to get CMP, but it seems to be not suited to my wider business as i rent property as a small part of my larger business and the landlord for the limited...

    Thanks everyone.

    I just had a call with CAB and basically they are in breach of contract for mis-representation of how much the property is valued at and advertised at. Hopefully, this will end OK with them simply revising their fees....

    Unless you signed the agreement at the agent's premises you have a 14 day cooling off period and can cancel the agreement.
    If they've spent any money, they can ask you to pay them for it, but I'd guess not (and, even if they have it will be cheaper than .25%)

    You've got 14 day cooling off period to cancel , or if he didn't tell you that, you can cancel at anytime .
    Personally I would give it a week for them to invest some time then ring up and say you've changed your mind about selling
    He will probably offer you the 1% then !!...

    I used to work for an estate agency (as a mortgage adviser) who were part of a national group of local estate agency chains.

    Their business model was to over-estimate the potential sale price to the vendor and have higher fees, a combination of which ended up in a net gain for the vendor...
