ASA pulls up estate agent that claims to be established in 1932
An estate agent has agreed to remove claims it was established in 1932 following a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).

Lovelle Estate Agency, which operates in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire, included the claim in the ‘About Us’ section on its website.

A complaint was made to the ASA suggesting that this claim could not be substantiated.

After being approached by the ASA, the firm agreed to remove the claim, though its Twitter byline still reads: “Established since 1932, Lovelle Bacons Estate Agency provide first class estate agency services within Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.”

According to Companies House, the firm was incorporated on 25 January 2006.
