    Getting EA to remove house from market

    Getting EA to remove house from market 19th Jun 17 at 8:19 PM
    I had an offer accepted at the weekend. EA said they'll remove the house as soon as they receive my AIP which expired in April. I didn't bother getting another one as I already have a mortgage offer for a previous property that I pulled out of. My MA said there's no need for another AIP as the offer letter (albeit for a different property) should be enough. He's already put in the new property details to be amended with our lender

    EA is refusing to accept this. Is there anything I can do short of applying for another AIP? They've said they're not accepting viewings on it so it shouldn't matter to me

    Maybe ask your mortgage advisor to call the EA and explain.

    Your MA is right, you can prove ability to purchase with previous offer, agent should accept it however may be being difficult to try and get you to see their mortgage advisor. I would also get a friend to call the estate agent saying they had seen the ad online to confirm that they are explaining currently under offer.

    From the agents point of view however they are protecting their client (the seller) and would want confirmation of your ability to proceed before loosing any potential enquiries on the property, this is standard industry practice.

    The house should be at least listed as 'under offer'. Once you've provided proof of funds, politely insist its taken off the market, if it isn't then withdraw the offer until they do.

    I found my house on the market by one EA, after I'd exchanged and was living in it.
