There's a new real estate agent site, curiously dubbed Say No To Rightmight, that has launched after the British estate portal's postponed payment scheme angered agents.

It has been launched by Rob Sargent, of south-based chain The Acorn Group, who has called on Rightmove to give agents a payment holiday during the Coronavirus crisis.

Say No to Rightmove acts as a platform for agents to share their reactions to the deferred payment scheme.

Sargent said:

“We created the campaign following the clearly huge amount of positive interest from the rest of our industry.

“There’s currently no central location for agents to collectively show and share their anger and frustration, or to show their competitors that we’re all on the same page.

“The aim of the site is not to boycott Rightmove completely, but convince them to see the truth which is staring them in the face, that their long term survival depends on us, and by not extending a full payment holiday to agents, they’re shooting themselves in the foot, as well as dooming many agents to closure.”
