Quite a good read - whether you are buying or selling a house, this is worth a read. 

You need to understand that for estate agents the money is in flogging mortgage products and how this can work against your interests. 

On another point the Government is determined to squeeze the profits from letting agents. Can't work out why since they work damn hard and provide a vital service. 

No matter, you can guarantee the "law of unintended consequences" will soon be at work if this goes ahead.
