Although liquidation proceedings are only just getting under way, Access 2 View, run by director Jim Johnston, has had a notice displayed on its website for some time.
This says that it closed on May 31 leaving clients without fulfilled orders and vendors without keys for completion.
It names a company called Residential Support, incorporated in May last year, as helping keys to be reunited with owners.
Access 2 View launched in 2013 and claimed to be the UK’s first outsourced viewings service.
It claimed to have a field team of over 500 viewing assistants across the country, both employed and self-employed.
As well as viewings, it offered services including inventory reports, photography, floor plans, Right to Rent checks and EPCs.
