I have been in my rented property for nearly a year now. My letting agency have just informed that I need to sign a new contract if I want to extend another year. It will cost me £72 to renew it. My aunt who works for an estate agent says it should be the landlord that pays it. When I questioned this with my agency they told me it was written in contract. I cant remember seeing thst. There is alot to read through. Can u please advise me if this sounds right to you. Thanks

Hi Nikki, letting agent renewal fees are illegal in Scotland and Shelter is currently running a campaign to have the same law apply in the UK. If you don’t want to pay the fee you can refuse to do so and we have written a blog post specifically about this topic which you can access on the following link:
