"I own a grade 2 listed cootage that needs work. I thought id never be able to sell. I got a letter from Sellquick saying they wanted to buy it. I mulled it over for a few weeks, checked reviews and decided they looked ok. Their guy came out and took some photos. He valued my property at £300k (subject to conversations with the office) and they would pay 15% below MV. However he was only interested in signing me up for Express Estate Agency. While he was there there was no time to Google and find the dreadful reviews for EEA. Once he had gone i spotted in the small print 'sole agency 24 weeks' 'upon expiry of the Sole Agency Period you must provide us with a minimum of 28 days notice.'
Turns out 15% below MV is actually 30% EEA dont know why their guy told us 15%.
We were bullied to drop our price £25k, we agreed and they dropped it £30k. They dont like putting anything in writing, dont return calls or emails (to buyers or sellers.) Dont display your postcode, floorplan, roomsizes, room descriptions and have no local agents. I have taken my house of the market and given them 19 weeks notice. However only they can remove my property from the market, and they refuse. - 9 weeks on the market, 6 viewings, 1 feedback, 0 offers."
