Government 'rules out estate agency regulation' ...

The government has allegedly ruled out any regulation of...

In response to Daniel Roder's question. It seems it is a practice of Online Estate Agents ( some if not all) to attempt to value a property without having some one on the spot with in depth local knowledge and the skills to provide sound accurate advice. I am in contact with a potential client who had placed a property on the market via a certain online agent, one who I would mention is particularly and publicly vocal in its constant criticism of traditional estate agents. Anyway , the online agent in question, had taken an upfront fee of several hundred £'s, just sent an energy assessor to provide an epc, floor plan and photographs, then placed the property on the usual websites, . The seller received virtually no professional advice at all from the online agent nor did they spend the time in fully researching and advising on any comparable evidence as to a realistic price to expect the property to sell for. As a result the property was placed on the market at a totally unrealistic high price and as such is attracting virtually no interest. in addition unlike a local experienced agent working on a no sale no fee basis. The online agent in question already had their fee upfront for them its job done with little or no further motivation to do any more than is absolutely necessary to get the property sold.....but as they say you get what you pay for

Cracking down on unscrupulous landlords is absolutely crucial, but it's vital that the nets they might be able to slip through are kept as small as possible. Sadly, it may be impossible to completely eradicate them - you'll always have a small criminal element who are out to make money, even if this is at the expense of those they are housing - but you can certainly make it very difficult for them to function.

Does seem like a complaint is a good way of sourcing free publicity? Mr Quirk from eMoov is an expert at it.

No worries, Kelly. Sorry I haven't got round to replying sooner! Yes, go for it. Best thing I ever did. Far from a bed of roses - it can be a lot of hard work and a wee bit stressful at times - but fully worth it in the end, once you get good at it and learn to delegate things to some very talented people.

Sorry for the late reply, Monday clubs is great but it eats a big hole in the day. A fair and balanced housing ladder needs to have it's feet on the ground, with build to let and buy to let effectively removing traditional starter homes from the system the housing ladder has become a loft ladder hung just out of reach for many. Bed blocking is problem for the NHS, House blocking is a problem for the PRS.
