Online estate agency group Emoov has announced the appointment of James Cowper Kreston as administrator having hit cash-flow problems due to a lack of investment.

Emoov had been seeking a prospective buyer for its enlarged group having completed a £100m merger with fellow online agents Tepilo and Urban.co.uk earlier in the year.
