Privacy of my offer details when buying a property

If I offer on a property, is the estate agent allowed to tell another buyer what my offer was?

  • If you made an offer and it was accepted then there would be no other buyers as the property would go under offer. However, if your offer was rejected by the buyer on the basis that it was to low and you did not improve on the offer, it would make sense for the agent, if he had another applicant who was considering making an offer, to tell that buyer that an offer of £x,xxx had been rejected by the vendor. However, a good agent would not (accept possibly in very extraordinary circumstances) give the name of the person who's offer was rejected. I hope this answers your question
