Put an offer in on a house today.

Estate agent says company policy that I must see their man.

Ok I says - what does he do?

Er - he deals with mortgages, is their reply.

Fine - IFA or a CEMAP sales introducer, I ask?

Er - not sure, but you need to see him, is the reply.

So, I think - they want me to see a guy not specialising in the unique circumstances that I have, and, are likely to then be not putting my offer in a fair and honest light to the vendor.

I know estate agents are getting desperate these days, but!!!

Not overly worried as my offer is to stamp duty limit and I know that they are not going to get any more than that. I am in a position to proceed, so, hoping just getting the AIP emailed over to me will be enough to get it sorted.

Houses play with the head.....

And are you going to need to give him 3 references before he gives you the keys? :laugh

Has Dodgy diversified, I wonder?

Has Dodgy diversified, I wonder?That would be a step downwards surely?

I thought that the path was:

Used Cars -> Financial Services -> Property -> Recruitment :laugh

I made the mistake of signing up at an estate agent a while ago. Keep getting loads of emails/mails etc with the same old houses. They must be pretty desperate to sell stuff.
