It's annoying but the EA is there to get the best bid possible (usually highest / most reliable). At least someone didn't turn the vendors head with a higher offer later on in the process, as that can actually happen!
The final offers thing is also annoying as it creates a real issue in deciding what to offer. Happened to all the places we were looking at last Summer.
I think the offer without viewing informal rule actually makes sense, especially as it could hamper non-dom investor purchases a little.

Some of the gazumping and bullshit EA moves that were going on in the more desirable areas actually made us completely re-evaluate what we wanted/where, wonder if this happens to many people.

Sorry just wanted to clarify when I say 'desirable' I'm just using estate agents speak for lots of white middle class people are upscaling there after selling their overinflated flats. Think boutique Listers like 'the Stowe brothers' etc.

My mate used to be an estate agent and would nick DVDs from people's houses.
Had a mental collection.
He's now a city recruiter.

Anyone have a property with the sole bathroom downstairs?
Looking at a place that ticks all boxes other than that.
I realise it's a deal breaker for some buyers so might not be so easy to sell on.
Is it something you just get used it? Not sure it would bother me but my gf pisses multiple times a night.

Unsure I could go ahead with it personally.
And the fact that you're questioning it yourself, signifies that when you come to sell it in the future that could be a barrier.
Unless installing a bathroom upstairs is viable?
