This sort of estate agent practise should be illegal

The stunning £3.6m Art Deco mansion featuring a room with a view (but the estate agent 'forgot' to mention the gasworks and scrap yard)

On first glance it seems like a property too good to be true. A beautiful Art Deco-style, gleaming white mansion with plush interiors boasting 'stunning countryside views'. Described by estate agents as a 'lifestyle mansion', Tindale Towers is four storeys high, boasts three reception rooms, five bedrooms, an indoor pool and leisure suite along with a jacuzzi, a garage with space for six cars and a sports court. Not surprisingly, the house comes with a £3.6 million price tag to match its high-end, high-spec design. Yet, curiously, the property has failed to attract a single offer from prospective buyers.

    Not sure about illegal – who would spend £3.6M unseen? They’d probably deserve what they got. Maybe any viewers could claim from the estate agent for wasted petrol money after they’ve been to see it.

  • They built this in the wrong location, location, location!
    I get the feeling that many new properties were purchased unseen during the past 10 years.
    For example I see one road full of new detached houses which were all sold for around 350k in 2006 and I am convinced they were purchased unseen because they are in the middle of nowhere and they all sold within a few months of each other. Some mug is now trying to sell one of those houses and the price is currently at 260k.

  • If people were buying houses, they might be bothered to take a look at their new home.

    No sympathy, serves them right.

    Move on!

  • I can’t help but feel that if the Daily Mail opposes something, then it must actually be good. They’d also be the first to complain about excessive red tape if the government did impose stricter regulations on estate agents.
