Having been on an Assured sholthold tenency for the last 6 month’s it is now coming to an end in 2 weeks.
My Question is can the agency make me pay renewel fee even if i let it roll over to a periodic tennency ?
I received a letter from agency stating :
Further to our recent conversation (That we never had) I am writing to confirm we will be amending the terms of your tenency to a statutory periodic tenency. to enable us to do this could you please forward payment as per invoice enclosed.
The invoice states AST renewel fee to periodic tenency. £90 (INC VAT)
Now i’m not happy with the agency, they are not very good. I takes them a long time to get anything done. previous tennents have said the same apparently.
the landlords family live next door and i have had no problems with them get on really well, it is through them that most issues with the property have been dealt with. the landlord is not exactly impressed with them also. I have asked family if th Landlord would be ok if I were to just carry on when tenency expires and he said he’s ok with that.
So can the agency make me pay a fee for something that should happen for free at the end of tenency ? I have checked my Agreement and can’t see anything about it.
