    Default How to ruin the weekend

    Had a phonecall this morning from our Estate Agent saying our chain has collapsed because..........................

    Get this!!!!!!!!!!...............................

    The first time buyer at the bottom 3 steps down..........


    Wait for it



    Believe it or not



    Doesn't Exist!!!!!!!!

    The agent fot that property basically lied to those up the chain after it had previously collapsed.

    So thats about £500 I have currently wasted on fees etc.

    Would welcome any advice and a bit of sympathy wouldn't hurt either.

    Not sure what action to take but our Agents aren't best pleased either!

    Jesus! Thats terrible!

    Who was the agent? Have you got any rights to sue them for the cost of the fee's you've (ie the chain) have paid out?

    That has to be fraud imo, I would report it to the police myself if the agent responsible doesn't have a morality jolt and offer to repay the fees of all involved.

    For anyone else considering moving, take out the insurance against chain collapse, with the costs these days it's a must.

    And full sympathy to you Scales, it's hard enough to earn a shilling without wasters lining their pockets at your expense.

    Like those above mate,

    I would be looking into the legal side of things, if its a National Estate Agents, i would be reporting them to the highest person within that company, and possilbly contact the Police, and whoeveer else could help!

    It amounts to fraud, taking Money without offering anything in retun!

    I would work it to your advantage and bluff. If it where me, I would be on to the agent at the bottom of the chain saying: You guys put everything into finding a buyer in the next 48 hours, or everyone involved in the chain will look to recover their costs from you.

    They will have a buyer on their books, one way or another. Agents are lazy and wait for people to come to them, but they DO have endless people on their books that they can call if they want to.

    You can speak to the ombudsman or the NAEA (national association of estate agents). To be honest they would probably wriggle out of it so don't hold out any hope.

    it's all to do with civil contacts, the police would not look into this because your company did not steal from you, your company was decieved by the other company. and the other company did not make a financial gain from you(its a trading standards thing).
    the best course of action is to get a signed statement form your company explaining what has happend, then take the other company to the small claims court. before you take them to the court speak to the citizens advice bureau, you may be able to get financial support. also try and make contact with the other "victims" who have been affected by this and get them to get signed statements expalining what has happened, i bet you this company has done this before. the more evidence you have the more likely you are to succeed. hope this helps.
