Just spoken to a lady who previously signed up with a High Street agent and, apart from them getting the sales particulars for her home wildly wrong, locked her in to a TWENTY SIX WEEK sole agency agreement AND charged her £150.00 for a Rightmove Premium Display listing too! (Ours are currently FREE).
Oh, and they wanted a big fat percentage commission of course.
This particular agency was part of Countrywide, the largest estate agency chain in the UK and with profits to match.
Beware restrictive, unfair sole agency contracts and make sure you refuse to pay over the odds for ‘add ons’ particularly when the agent stands to earn £5000.00 at the end of the process!
Britain. Wake up to the alternative.
