Region where a ‘spate’ of estate agencies are going out of business


There appears to have been “a spate” of estate agencies going out of business in Norfolk, newspaper readers have been told.

The Eastern Daily Press has carried what appears to be a timely article offering advice to vendors when an estate agency shuts up shop.

Nick Taylor, of Hadley Taylor, and Aidan Branch, of Durrants, outline options for sellers who have exchanged contracts but not completed; have agreed a sale but not yet exchanged; and who are still on the market.

Taylor adds: “There do seem to have been a spate of Norfolk estate agents going into liquidation in recent months.

“The reason for this is nearly always because these firms haven’t been charging enough for their services.

“Some consumers really do believe that they can get the best possible service for the lowest possible price, and in the grown-up world this is rarely the case.”

He says: “My best advice is to pick a long-established firm in the first place and not a firm that is here today and gone tomorrow.”
