At the weekend, Gascoigne Halman issued this statement: “Gascoigne Halman notes that the Competition Appeal Tribunal last week ordered Agents’ Mutual to make a further payment into court of £830k to cover its legal costs in the event that Gascoigne Halman succeeds in the legal action being taken against it by Agents’ Mutual.
“This, together with an additional £450k also ordered to be paid into court in respect of a separate but related action, means that Agents’ Mutual will have paid into Court over £2m by year end.
“Agents’ Mutual also stated to the court that their own legal costs will exceed £2m.
“Gascoigne Halman is committed to defending its position and is confident that the Competition Appeal Tribunal will uphold its right to advertise on portals of its choice.
“As a Gold member of OnTheMarket, Gascoigne Halman is extremely disappointed that Agents’ Mutual has chosen to divert over £4m of its members’ loan notes and subscriptions away from its marketing activities when they would surely be better employed for the benefit of its members.”
It is thought that the other action referred to in the statement relates to Cardiff-based independent Moginie James, which also continues to list at OnTheMarket.
