After 1 year, they had sent around just two buyers.
After this year had passed I decided they had had their chance. I ‘phoned them and said I didn’t want to use them any more.
I followed this up with a letter sent Recorded Delivery.
I used another estate agents
A month later, received a call from RTA wanting to send around a potential buyer. Told them I had cancelled with them. They apologised.
Another month later I receive a further call from them again wanting to send around a potential buyer. Told them this is the third conversation I had with them, could they please update their records. Person from RTA was incredibly rude and I ended up putting the ‘phone down on them.
I sold the business in December 2007
That was the end of it ... or so I thought!
Went to my bank a month or so ago to enquire about a loan. Was told by them I had something ‘adverse’ on my credit file. Further investigation revealed that RTA had issued a summons against me in April 2008 for about £3,000. (It was sent to an address I was not living at (and apparently returned back to the court marked “not known at this address”))
I am sending back a request to have judgement set aside, but will be seeking further legal advice.
Yesterday, I got home to find a bailiff had visited my house!
