We have sold our property and recently arranged to view a property to buy, 3 bed semi, which was in need of a fair amount of renovation/updating. We were later advised by the agent the property was to be sold by a best offer/sealed bids arrangement, and because there was a lot of interest in the property, viewing times would only be 10 minutes. I contacted the agent and requested a call from the branch manager as we were not happy with such a short viewing time. No call from the manager and so we cancelled the viewing as I don't believe 10 minutes is an adequate time period to properly view a property, particularly one in need of renovation. This does appear to be a rather dubious practise by the agent; has anyone else been offered/subjected to such short viewing times?
