    Shocking service by a growing company that has forgotten the local approach

    I hoped for their sake that a feedback questionnaire was not sent but thank you for the opportunity to explain how truly awful the company and the experience has been. To say that Blundells took the most of all parties "assisting" with my sale they were the most shocking and I will never use them again. An opinion supported by other competitors and myself was that the house was over valued initially so that they could get the sale on their books to then try and tell me to reduce my price to something in the region of all the other valuer's valuations that came around. Because the valuation was at least £5,000 more than others I thought I was mad not to. Apart from hopefully obtaining more money I also appreciated the handling of when I purchased the property, however it seems that with the merging to Countrywide I became a number rather than a person that they wanted to do well for. The update conversations always went along the lines of I have had no interest, don't know what's happened, have you thought of reducing the price. The price we got was shear luck and we had resigned ourselves to it not selling so we were saving a larger deposit to take the sale away from Blundells and give it to someone more competent. We initially used their Mortgage Advisor and although she advised she was able to look at the whole of the market this was clearly untrue as we got a far better mortgage product from paying someone else to look at the matter. The person looking after our sale changed three times which lacked consistency in approach. People that were clearly unsuitable were sent to have a look at the property wasting my time and effort. I had three elderly woman sat in my bedroom hyperventilating because the steps were too steep, a man who said that Blundells had said we would accept £15,000 less than the price, and another man who said that Blundells has advised them that there was outline planning permission. This was clearly done as viewings were low and they wanted to be seen to be helping. There was a period of time that information was being sent to Blundells recommended solicitor rather than the one that I had notified them of. If I had gone with Taylor & Emmett, they too would have bled me dry with their charges. The customer Service only kicked in when the sale was going ahead so that it could be shown that they were trying to progress the matter. By this stage I was in full control and was pushing the sale myself. The timescale advised by the Blundell valuer was six months and out for Christmas. I have been in my house 3 weeks so clearly Christmas was missed. I would congratulate them on truly shafting another seller as the service was truly ridiculous.

    Taylor and Emmett, solicitors recommended by Blundells , are inneficient to the point of tainting the reputation of Blundells. If keeping away from T&E meant not dealing with Blundells then so be it. Sorry but you did ask. Keith Hale.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. I am sorry if you felt Blundells recommendation of Taylor and Emmett solicitors was poor. Your comments regarding this have been passed on to the Regional Performance Director. Many thanks.
