Estate agency fees comparison website NetAnAgent.com has amended claims about its service within its advertising following a complaint from an estate agent.The Folkestone-based website, which enables vendors and landlords to invite estate agents to bid for their instruction based on fee level, has been going for eight years.Claims within two ads published by NetAnAgent.com were challenged by Midlands multi-disciplinary estate agency Sheldon Bosley Knight, which recently contacted the Advertising Standards Authority to complain.These were included within both a website banner and a customer service email, which claimed that “NetAnAgent.com is a free and simple way to get the best service and most competitive estate agent fees” (on the banner) and (on the email) “Your agent proposals. These fees are exclusive to NetAnAgent and may not be available directly”.MisleadingEstate agency Sheldon Bosley Knight challenged whether the claims were misleading.“We approached the advertiser who agreed to amend the claim to ‘partner agents’ and remove the “exclusive to” wording from its email.NetAnAgent says it lists 19,300 estate agents within its service and can save vendors up to 33% on their selling fees if they use its platform.Read more about complaints about property services. netanagent advertising standards authority May 20, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Activists have won the battle to get CCTV installed on the most dangerous road in Oxford.Four wireless cameras are to be installed along Cowley Road for a trial period of a year, after much controversy and years of arguments.At present, there are no CCTV cameras along Cowley Road, meaning that activity on the streets can only be recorded through in-store devices. Earlier this term, Supt Brendan O’Dowda launched a campaign to get Oxford City Council to back the installation of cameras along the most crime-ridden street in the city. Over the past year, more than 760 crimes were reported along the street, but without video footage, it is difficult to prosecute those involved.He commented that in the same space of time there had been more than 700 arrests where CCTV was in operation.O’Dowda confronted concerns that CCTV will result in less policing of the area, saying: “This was only about making the Cowley Road safer. It was never about replacing police.”So far, responses to the £48000 plans have been positive, with OUSU President Martin McCluskey saying: “It’s going to be good for student safety and I think it’s going to reassure a lot of people living in the earea.”It’s certainly going to reassure me that there is going to be a lot of monitoring and more police freed up in the wider area of East Oxford.”
by William Green‘Slounge’ is a new night of culture funded, organised and performed by Oxford Contemporary Music (OCM), Hammer & Tongue, Oxford’s finest Slam poets, and the Oxford Film and Video Makers (OFVM). Throughout November and December they’re doing their highly artistic thing in The Vaults Café, in Radcliffe Square. It’s a great venue; the cold stone of the church building is offset by the warmth of the atmosphere, the packed tables, and the delicious home-made food served from seven onwards whilst a DJ gets things started with some inoffensive background musak. Admittedly, it is a little bit Nathan Barley. The place is full of weekend hippies, blokes with white-man dreds talking about the difference between Old World and New World wine, and women painstakingly sculpted into the casual boho look. I suppose that explains the name: ‘Slounge’. I have no idea what this is supposed to mean. As far as I can tell, it is lounge with an ‘s’ on the front. But if you can get over these little niggles, it really is a nice atmosphere. First on the bill was current International Spoken Word Champion, Steve Larkin. Except, he had flu, which was a shame as he truly is excellent. In his stead was Sophia Blackwell, who is gay, by the way, and wants you to know it. After a shaky start- a rather contrived poem about fairytales and teenage romance-she got into the meat of her material. Given the church setting, her pounding meditations on religion and death were oddly appropriate. The stand-out poem, however, was a beautifully crafted conceit called ‘Buying Tomatoes’, in which her rhymes and rhythms hit the heights of inventiveness and wit which her other works had tantalisingly suggested. If this is a sign of her progression then I look forward to seeing her again. Following Sophia was a set of four short films by the OFVM. I sipped my nicely chilled red wine and suppressed the urge to laugh. Sorry, but they were a bit stupid. In any other context they would be an acute parody. First, a film about a man jumping a pole vault; then a heart-wrenching narrative of a box which gets carefully made and discarded. The third film was so bad I’m not even going to write about it, and the final picture-an interesting concept of narrating the break up of a love triangle through the medium of dance-would have been quite good if the dancers hadn’t been so obviously amateur. There is a bit more to dancing than jumping against walls. The evening was slipping away, and it needed something special from ‘winsome folk-punk harpist’ Serafina Steer to rescue the night. Fortunately, she delivered magnificently. Her classical training on the harp was immediately evident and beautifully complimented her achingly fragile voice which constantly seemed on the brink of breaking, yet still managed to hit that extra note higher. Her lyrics were dynamic and broad, telling tales of tigers, peach hearts and rivers in a way which simultaneously managed to be dreamlike and incisive. Her forcefully demanded encore, ‘Curses, curses, curses’ was sublime, demonstrating that even obscure comedy folk songs like ‘Valerie Wilkins’ were not beyond her scope. After Serafina came another six films, but I didn’t stay to watch them. Having heard something so good, I really didn’t want to spoil it. Perhaps that was rather close-minded of me, but I don’t regret it. If you ever get the chance to see Serafina Steer, then take it. The next Slounge event is Wednesday 5th December, featuring Mercury nominated acoustic/electronica songwriter Leafcutter John and the interactive art of Lisa Busby.
