How to check if an agency is lying?
Hello. A repossessed house was advertised by an estate agency - the owner passed away. The house price was £155,000 however, the house needs some proper attention. I wanted to put an offer of £135,000 hoping to buy if for £140,000, however the agent said an offer of over £140,000 was already placed. Now how can I check if the offer was really placed and was genuine? How can I know that it was not placed by some 'fake' client (i.e. a friend of the agent) to increase the price? as obviously if I want to buy it. I have to put an offer of over £140 and I have done that already. But I just discovered that the same house is also advertised by another agency. I was thinking to call them and put an offer of £135 via them but I guess it is too late now as already placed offer of over 140k with the first agency?
