A very frustrating site, I would have thought to attract clients the web site would have been made more accessible, why is an English postal code necessary to be able to request additional property information… Read Full Review

My grandson rented a prperty in Canterbury. The office was not open to collect the key when I called depite being assured that someone would be in.We had to go on the wbsite to find the main office (in exeter) The person there then had to find the owner of the property and ask him to bring a key. As he lived an hour away, this meant another wait.Problems didn't end there.Final demand notices were awaiting my grandson(in his name)for water and a demand from southern electric for another large… Read Full Review

This website brings together in one place the adverts from the majority of all the estate agent's websites.
If there are out of date properties listed on the site it is usually because they haven't been taken down from the estate agent's website.
The best way to use the site is to find properties you like the look of, then refer to the estate agent's own site to see if it's still available.
Used like this, it's a brilliant time saving device for finding as many properties as possible that fit… Read Full Review

Both Right Move and FindaPorperty.com contain countless properties that are no longer available. When I was looking for a place to rent I called up several different estate agents to enquire about properties listed on the above sights. Every time I was told that the property in question was no longer available but that they had others on their books and that I should come in for a chat. One estate agent I spoke to said that estate agents don't bother taking the old properties down as they… Read Full Review

I have enquired about 2 properties i found on Rightmove.co.uk and on both occasions, never even got a call back from the agent, so whos fault is this? the 1st one, I rang the agent 3 hours later after not hearing anything only to be told, sorry its already gone.. yet rightmove still had it listed as available.. not a very good start. the 2nd time, i never heard a thing, so im guessing its the same deal as the 1st one.. the IPhone App is great.. but if the properties on it, are not kept up to… Read Full Review

I helped a friend to search for an investment property today. We found rightmove and were amazed by the level of detail; for example: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/ property-25567144.html We highlighted a few properties and will phone the agencies tomorrow… Read Full Review

This site was a god-send when I was looking at moving to London, didn't actually move in the end but the sheer level of information I got from the site about the local area and everything else was brilliant, I'd definitely visit here next time I'm considering moving… Read Full Review

Its a brilliant website. It certainly gives a wide range of choice of homes in UK and overseas as well. The holiday lettings is the best part of it. One will surely get home of his/her choice if s(he) visits the site and check out the stuff… Read Full Review

Website is brilliant, the fact that it links through to local schools and results table is very important to me and my family who are looking to move into a place for the long run, therefore a good promary school and secondary school nearby is very important.
Rightmove even have an iphone app and I love it, it even gets you houses for sale based on your GPS location which is very nifty when you are scouting an area… Read Full Review

Rightmove has misleading photography that in my view is misdiscription and ends in disappointment, wasted time and costly viewing to both the prospective buyer and vendor. Use normal photographs and save disappointment and peoples time. That way we can see if we really are interested or not… Read Full Review

I regularly visit www.rightmove.co.uk to search for my possible first home. The site looks clean and is easy to use, the introduction of several new filters makes it easier to remove retirement homes which is great.
It would be good to be able to select several areas at once instead of having to select a whole county.
The search for properties for sale or rent near to a rail or tube station is a nice touch. I imagine this is handy for people looking for new jobs and having to relocate… Read Full Review

It might be convenient for estate agents to advertise on a portal like rightmove.co.uk, but ultimately people want convenience, and people looking for a house are likely to want a site that is easy to navigate… Read Full Review

We have used RightMove.co.uk for letting property in Cambridge, Newmarket and Haverhill, and I have to say we got a pretty good response from Landlords and Tenants looking to rent. I'm not sure about the virtual tours of houses that some agents use, as it seems to take a long time to load, but I agree that agents need to update their RightMove details more often… Read Full Review

RightMove (www.rightmove.co.uk) is OK, but the website needs updating everyday by the estate agents.
Needs lots more pictures, or I'm not interested in looking at the properties… Read Full Review

I used an estate agent who used the RightMove property website, but my house didn't sell, so I moved to another agent who used Property Finder and my house sold within the month, so RightMove is a large site, but not very effective… Read Full Review

I have recently used RightMove.co.uk to look for houses to buy and then rent after we changed our minds about buying. I have found a lot of estate agents don't really update their websites often enough making house hunting online pointless as the one you want has invariable gone 6 weeks ago. RightMove was a lot better (though not quite perfect) and we were able to find properties based on our search criteria that actually existed… Read Full Review
