Can a registered with professional bodies Letting Agent who is not listing its fees online and jusy had charged me a whopping £600 in admin fees can on top of this charge us as tenants a Deposit Protection Fee of £180? As far as I am concerned it is landlords responsibility to make sure our deposit is registered and protected so why is landlord agent charging us this ridiculously high amount for registering our deposit abs is this even legal? I wasn’t able to find any information on regards to this online, hence my post. I would really appreciate Andy advice on this, we are about to sign a tenancy agreement in couple of days as we have no choice but go ahead with this, the agent has not listed its fees online and didn’t disclose all of them when we did he viewing and took a holding deposit without showing us the exact list of fees. When we finally have been shown the amount my jae has dropped , the total of £780 in fees for a small two bedroom house. They refused to give us £400 holdong deposit back and pushed is to go ahead with the contract. They took off £120 as a ‘gesture of good will after I complained about their fees not being listed on their website but I still believe that they should not be charging us for registering deposit and it should be the landlord that is paying for it. I have never heard of any agent charging his kind of fee, is it legal for them to do so? Any advise would be much appreciated . Thank you!
