  • Be careful to this vendor and estate agent.

    The following that property, 49, Alexandra Crescent, Beeston, NG9 2BS,
    appeared on rightmove on 30th March, 2013 was first put on the rightmove on 10th, Octember as a no-chain property and then STC with the price of 120,0000.

    At the very last minute, the vendor decide to pull it out. This can be seen on the rightmove website as status changed on 23rd, Nov, 2012.

    The reason was that they could not find a rent property. Actually, before accepting the offer, the vendor promised that they had a lot of places to live, e.g. parents' house or friends' house as well.

    Plus, the information given by the estate agent was not correct. From the valuation report, it found there are a lot of dampness and structure change.

    Furthermore, all the windows are single-layer glass and not as double-layer glass as advertised.

    The property is within a council properties area with a lot of council houses.

    Please be careful to them when you decide to buy this one since they can change their mind as they like.
