AVOID! Disappointingly we did not receive a good service from Manning Stainton, Horsforth.
Myself and boyfriend were buying our first house together and fell in love with a property in Cookridge. We offered close to the asking price of £270k and were so pleased when it was accepted last March. Presuming it wouldn't take long, we were happy to wait for the vendors to find something. However, 4-5 months later the vendors (who are close friends with a member of staff at this branch) had still not found anything.
At this point they had offered on a number of properties, but EVERY offer had been rejected because they were offering too low. They then decided that they wanted to look at more expensive Bungalows which were out of their price range, so Mannings asked us to increase our offer by £20k over the asking price!!! The house was not/is not worth the extra money and there was no comparable evidence from other sales to suggest it was. This couple, at the advise of Mannings were taking advantage of me and my boyfriend and trying their luck in an outrageous way.
6 months later we have bought a much larger house in a much nicer area of Cookridge that was worth more money and, surprise, surprise, this property is still on the market!!! Karma.
