Morals (or lack of) of an estate agent

Dozy Parker Gets £530 bill

Our local paper, Your Move estate agent fined for fraud for faking parking tickets to avoid £8 a day charges. He had already racked up £1000 in parking fines. Tried to blame it on an imaginary friend. Wonder if he takes his morals to work with him.

  • He probably looks like a completely upstanding member of the community, not like those fat-tied cheap suits with a poncy haircut.

    Erm, oh.

  • There’s nothing wrong with estate agents. It’s not their fault prices are high. A lot of them have lost their jobs in recent years too, because the volume of transactions has crashed since 2007. An industry with no entry qualification requirements and an element of sales patter is bound to attract people who most of us would find annoying at any length, but that’s just the nature of the business. Can we stop with the EA-bashing on here?

    I think you are too kind to the estate agent profession. Here’s a flashback to 2003:

    Skip to 3:00 to get straight to the point: pervasive fraud being encouraged by estate agent financial advisors.

    I can accept that the estate agent business will attract some pushy sales people, much like car salesmen, but was it too much to ask that they stayed within the law during the boom?

    @Novice Pete

    That was a ridiculous way to respond that doesn’t do you any favours.

  • Yes let’s stop estate agent bashing. There are plenty of others who can do that.

    No, I’m sorry, but what a lot of them do is nothing short of criminal.

  • A disproportionate number of them (though still a minority) may be dodgy, but they bear absolutely no responsibility for high house prices.

  • i just read the article and scrolled down the comments and realised that a “ben-evans” is arguing his innocence with the other readers commenting and that someone else has commented that ben evans has threatened someone else into paying his fine etc……this is a crazy world where trials are then re-fought on the comment boards of local papers! priceless
