AllAgents has suspended the Purplebricks account on its site.
It has never before suspended an account.
allAgents said it had taken the unprecedented action after “repeated threats of legal action forcing the removal of negative reviews from our website”.
Allagents said it will continue to accept genuine customer reviews for Purplebricks although it will be unable to publish them, for the time being at least.
Martin McKenzie of allAgents told EYE that the 140 or so reviews of Purplebricks that have been removed in their entirety included about a dozen with five-star ratings.
He said that a further statement will be issued, pending legal advice.
