    Hi

    I would like to know if it is at all possible for an estate agent to get the buyer to pay an amount of money to make sure that they got the house they wanted e.g. house is being marketed for 290,000 and they offer that price. The brokers for their mortgage say the house is only worth 270,000 and so the sellers agree to let the buyers have the house for 270,000 + the buyers will also pay £10,000 to the seller in order to get the house. Could it be possible that the estate agent has also gained £10,000 from the buyer so the house price of 290,000 was achieved but with the estate agent pocketing 10,000 also??
