I’m about to renew my current tenancy agreement, after 1 year. During this period the lettings agency that handled this since the beginning has been acquired by another wider agency.
I’m happy to renew the tenancy agreement and so is the landlord. Unfortunately, the agency seems to want to charge a new deposit for the same house. This doesn’t make sense to me because I’m not renting a new house.
But I don’t really know how these things work, so I’d really appreciate your guidance on this.
