  1. Went into the agency today and got my deposit back without much hasle thankfully. The agency did indeed impy that the landlord went behind the agency's back. Oh well, I didn't lose any money, just time and effort. Still frustrating though.
  2. I put down a holding deposit for a house on saturday, but by monday I got call from the agent saying that the landlord has decided to let the house to her friend instead! That's even before I have have had a credit check or anythign like that. I was under the impression that the holding deposit meant they couldnt offer it to anyone else. I am not going to bother fighting it as I'm sure the tennacy would end up being a nightmare now, but it just left a bad taste. Is this normal?
  3. http://www.mustbesold.com/index.php?option...=&minbeds=0 http://www.houseprices.co.uk/e.php?q=CM23+5PR 3 bed house sold for £360,000 in 2006. Guide price of £190,00 at auction now. Not a bad little drop.
  4. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-218...p;mam_disp=true the other end of the scale! 725k for a 3 bed flat!!!
  5. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-214...p;mam_disp=true 34% drop! getting there.. would almost consider that reasonable..right next to station as well...depends what inside is like tho.
  6. Your quite right..it is a bit of double standards and I shouldnt have really publsihed it. However, As some one else pointed out, it is not my responsibility to keep this information private. Also, they didnt just just send it to me, they sent to everyone on their malling list.
  7. http://www.intercounty.co.uk/Property/Resi...-Stortford.aspx - Offer war 213k Loks like it has sold too! so a drop of 17k
  8. I am subscribed to an intercounty mailing list for new properties. I got an interesting one this morning! They managed to atach a pdf containing the details of an offer someone had made on a property. I won't be using them in future!
  9. here here! I have been monitoring the bishops stortford market for the last 12 months. No one is willing to negotiate on their asking price. All the flats that have been built in the area are VERY overvalued. small 2 bedroom flats and they still want way over £200k! And they still use the old trick of putting in smaller furniture to make the room look bigger. They are getting desperate tho. I get estage agents ringing me virtualy every day. Personally, even tho I have a large deposit, I am not going to even look untll after xmas now.
