Used Fraser Wood to carry out the negotiations on a lease extension. Andrew Perrin was great and a real asset. He was knowledgeable and very helpful throughout. Always kept in touch throughout his part in the process. Everyone else I dealt with at Fraser Wood were also helpful and professional, passing on messages promptly and going out of their way to help us.

Viewed a property with the estate agents and they wanted and insisted that we arranged the mortgage with them for the property rather than my own advisor and I had the mortgage arranged in principal which was not good enough for them.
As a result, even though my offer was higher they still decided to go with the other party because they decided to have their mortgage arranged by Fraser wood.
Fraser wood mentioned that this was the vendors decision and not theirs?
I thought it's Fraser wood was selling the property on behalf of the vendor and not the vendor.
The mortgage advisor tony said he's independent but has his office based their for the last 20years. This was more his decision to stop us purchasing the property.
He also mentioned that our offer was higher and that the other party only offered which was 2,000 less.
I thought they were unable to mention offers?
Very unethical way to run an estate agency and be aware that they will
Only deal with you if you decide to take the mortgage with them.
If you are also looking to sell your property, then you may not get your complete asking price because they may get a cut back from arranging mortgages thus you may receive less than the asking price.
