Is The Estate Agent Out Of Order

Recommended Posts

we put an offer in on a home [asking price] lower offer was not accepted. had a survey done which showed many faults, so rather than pull out we thought get a builder to go for quotes on repairs then if expensive discuss the offer price.

before even bringing the topic up the owner told the estate agent he would not drop despite what ever the buiders quotes were.

So with this attitude we pulled out and cancelled quotes/sol/mortgage etc.

a day or too later estate agents rang said get the quotes and he would now discuss.

sounds good so we rang everyone and said its back on. telling the sol not to conduct searches etc till we had agreed a price [still suspicious of owner] went into estate agents fully discussed everything and all seemed well.

by chance drove past the house and found it had a board up back up for sale behind out back, [but not on the internet perhaps so we would not notice as we live a long way off]

Rang the estate agent [part of a national chain] who confirmed it all and said it was all going too slow. Now agree they act on behalf of the seller first. But my moan should they have told us they had put it back on the market instead of keeping quiet about it.

any comments now worried can we still trust the estate agent and the owner

saw it back on rightmove today again never heard from the estate agents. So no idea where we stand, rang the head office of the estate agent chain and made a complaint about not informing us its back on the market while we are going through the purchase. feel so had over by the estate agent seriosly thinking of pulling out, estate agents head office seemed helpful will give a few days to get a reply.
