LATEST GOV ADVICE ON SELLING AND VIEWING YOUR HOME

The Government have this morning given the green light to open the property market following strict guidelines to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus.

PurpleBricks bill clients £18m in 2019 for property they failed to sell

Amzing article here about so called disruptor PurpleBricks and not something they seem to mention in their glossy TV ads, but they pocketed £18million from clients whose houses they failed to sell in 2019.
