Alexander Hall, the financial services arm of Foxtons, is closing its head office in London and relocating staff into Foxtons branches.

The firm said that the move was unrelated to the economic climate and had always been planned when the lease on the head office in Lombard Street expired.

    They will eventually find themselves all working.

    Sounds like someone is not telling their mortgage staff the real picture about closing down the head office. I think its called divide and sack, or was that conquer.

    I heard that spicerhaart are buying out Foxtons, cos they got better mortgage advisors that don't lie to anyone.

    They must be the only brokers in London that are doing the same as last year! now the broker arm are lying as much as the estate agents! - Must keep face, must keep face - I wonder how the default on the loan for Foxtons is progressing?

    Alexander Hall are an absolute shower. Almost all are poorly trained and badly informed about mortgages etc.

    I think they deserve each other (i.e Foxtons and Alexander Hall.

    Maybe they should sell all their bottles of water. Mind you, they're probably all out of date now, a bit like Foxtons altogether....ouch!!!

    Why don't they sell coffee and sandwiches from their branches to bring some cash in.

    Foxtons have so many empty desks in all their offices - perhaps they should enter the second hand furniture market. Just an idea

    nope, nothing whatsoever to do with the down turn. its a "strategic" move as im sure they are just "streamlining" the operation.

    Well it must be because of the economic slowdown. If business was brisk then they would renew the lease. But then they do have soooooooooo many empty desks in their branches at the moment.
