Houser’s Listing Removal API Now Available for Agents

As promised last week, we at Houser have been working on developing an Application Program Interface (API) which will allow estate agents to get their listings removed from Houser.

Developers can use the API request format below after replacing the data fields with the appropriate information. Once the request is received by Houser, you will get an email for its confirmation, following which it will be forwarded  for processing.

The API request format is as follows:

http://www.houser.co.uk/Api/RemoveListing.ashx?CompanyName=COMPANYNAME&ApplicantName=YOURNAME&Designation=DESIGNATION&CompanyEmail=EMAILADDRESS&HouserURL=HOUSERPROFILEURL&ComapanyWebsite=COMPANYWEBSITEURL&ComapanyContact=COMPANYPHONENUMBER&ApplicantContact=YOURPHONENUMBER&NumberOfBranches=NUMBEROFBRANCHES&PaidListingAgreement=1&AuthorizationAgreement=1

The use of ‘1’ in the last two variables of the string imply your agreement with two of our terms, which are:

  1. I understand that I may not get free listing access on Houser once I request a removal.
  2. I am authorized by the agency owner/board of directors to request removal of all our information.

Once the request is received by our server, you may receive one of the following responses:
