Judges reject Gascoigne Halman appeal in OnTheMarket competition case
The Court of Appeal has today dismissed Connell-owned estate agency Gascoigne Halman’s challenge to the original Competition Appeal Tribunal adjudication in July last year.
That found that Agents’ Mutual, which since the court case has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of OnTheMarket plc, was entirely legal in its pursuit of a then strictly enforced ‘one other portal rule’ which has since been dropped, and also its exclusion of online-only and hybrid agents and its listings’ ‘exclusivity’.
Following a hearing in November, the Court of Appeal has today issued a judgement in favour of Agents’ Mutual with regard to all the competition issues in its proceedings against Gascoigne Halman.
