Take that you nasty piece of work
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has won a High Court case against Foxtons, following complaints from landlords. In February of last year, the OFT began an action against the London-based estate and lettings agency, which had been accused of trapping landlords with small print in its contracts. The OFT issued proceedings under the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations 1999 and following yesterdayâ€™s judgment will ask the High Court to grant injunctions preventing the continued use of the terms by Foxtons.
