Rightmove has lost a number listings from agents who have decided to take their listings and business elsewhere, saying that they were paying more to list on the portal than for their own rent.

OnTheMarket named three of the agents who were deserting Rightmove for this reason, saying that they have instead signed up to OTM on long-term contracts.

They are Albion Sales and Lettings in Northampton; Camerons, a lettings firm in Bournemouth; and Jungle Property, a lettings firm in Somerset.

Sally Knights, of Albion, said: “We have cancelled our Rightmove subscription. We were paying more in fees each month than our office rent so it’s high time there was an industry disruptor.”

Her firm has signed a three-year contract with OTM.

Aleina Cameron of Cameron has also signed up for three years.

She said: “I was a customer of Rightmove’s for over ten years but the price increase of 20%, which put the monthly fee up to £900, was too much so I cancelled.

“Annually, that’s more than I pay for my office rent.

“I refuse to be dictated to by Rightmove.”

Tom Morgan of Jungle Property has signed up to OTM for five years.
