Another few questions for the group.
We have having to move again (3rd a Time in 5 years) because as per usual the landlord wants to sell.
We have found another house and just got the list of fees from the letting agent which never cease to amaze me.
1) £144 for setting up a contract. Would this be the same contract that you setup for us twice before and that you just print off and fill in the blanks.
2) £188 for references, would these be the same references that you checked the last two times, or rather didn’t and why should the landlord not have to pay this, it’s them that wants the references checked.
3) £60 admin fee. I don’t really have an issue with this
4) £75 for an inventory. Why exactly do I have to pay for an inventory on an empty house that is not even mine.
I except that letting agents need to make money and I don’t mind paying a hundred pounds or so but £450 odd is absolute daylight robbery,
