Surely if people cannot afford to buy houses, that means the market is over priced and helping people to buy over priced houses, can only fuel further price increases?
And so making a lot of accountants redundant………………
It’s not just letting agents it’s ALL agents both estate and letting that should be regulated. They are the only part of the housing industry that isn’t and it’s high time the government put a stop to this ridiculous scenario and bought these people to book. It would also help the housing market as it would put an end to their more nefarious schemes to keep inflating prices, and would also be beneficial to borrowers, who would no longer be bullied with threats of losing the property, into using the vendor’s estate agents in-house mortgage broker, invariably ending up with a worse deal.
The Cynical Broker
I have had an agent go into liquidation and has not paid a number of landlords back rent or deposits, what are our next steps?
