Much as I believe that Rightmove & Zoopla have too much influence on the market, and we need additional entrants in order to provide competition, choice and contain costs, the new portal, Agents’ Mutual are trying to implement a clause restricting their clients to only use one other portal.

Whilst they do need to get a quick foothold, restricting the marketing of a property is patently not in consumers’ interests. I for one wouldnt agree to this. It may reduce my costs but their portal hasnt established itself, and not using either Rightmove or Zoopla would be a big mistake in the current marketplace as consumers and investors rely on them to search for properties.
