It seems that there are some estate agents that are looking to trick potential buyers into completing actions in an order that Kirstie has described as ‘NOT legal’.

The practice in question is the evidence of many estate agents forcing potential buyers into meeting with a mortgage advisor and going through a mortgage application prior to being able to view a property. 

This may be viewed as an estate agent ensuring that someone is committed to purchasing a property but many also see it as a way for estate agents to trap you into using their in-house mortgage adviser.

Both Kirstie and our team want to make you very aware that it is not a legal nor necessary action, whilst it may seem acceptable due to the number of estate agents found to be doing this, please be sure to contact us if you experience any request that you deem to be suspicious.
