    8%+vat is pretty standard if the property is outside of London, though really they should be quoting inclusive of VAT now. We, in Manchester, are 10% including VAT, if that's any help.

    There are plenty of reviews for the various options out there on google etc, though check a couple of sources as some are 'managed'. Do you not have a good local agent in your area? For the £500 or...

    It could be a multi list situation, advertised through another agent(st) to increase the exposure, though the lead agent should really have informed the client to avoid any doubt.

    Hi there,

    I've sent you a message.

    There are actually quite a few sites to find reviews, you can also do basic checks on the company to see if there's any adverse history/credit, which can be an indicator. Membership of a regulator...

    Sadly i'm in Manchester so can't help with the letting, or recommending of an agent. You shouldn't generally be paying anything upfront, it's usually no let no fee. It might be the case that they...

    Seconded, and the DPS would have no problem deciding in your favour.

    Are you the agent or landlord? If agent which area are you in? RM is typically £1k+vat per month per office for lettings and sales. If they've quoted £200/month for lettings that's not bad at all,...

    We're not all bad! The one that you have is clearly incompetent, they haven't acted in your best interests. I'd be very surprised if they tried to levy a fee to leave them, considering their huge...

    The fees differ significantly though, as do the reasons for charges. I run an independent agency in Manchester, we do charge an initial application fee, but do not charge any other fees. The national...

    The agent just needs to work out a realistic price for each, you then ideally need to work out a discount that'd be affordable to incentivise an investor. It's certainly more difficult this way...

    mariner,

    Not the same but certainly linked and rather a grey area, especially if T&Cs state it'll be used towards tenancy deposit.

    As an agent myself i'd certainly return all funds paid if we/the landlord were at fault. With them calling it a holding deposit too you do have a level of protection from deposit legislation, as...

    Following "clear cut" with "likely" and "safe route" show it's far from clear. As an agent we re-issue the PI but do not relodge, simply no need for it. If a matter ever made it to court we'd have...
  16. Landlordexpert/landlord association - anyone heard of them?

    They're touting advertising space on their website but i've never heard of them despite having 45k members, apparently. My suspicions are that it's just making money from advertising without giving...

    If the Section 21 was produced by the agent £90 is a ridiculous charge. Realistically though I doubt it'd be grounds for dismissal, you'd be best to negotiate with them to bring their management to a...

    She'll no doubt have to pay a fee to cut all ties, just ensure it is final i.e. they won't try to come back with renewal charges etc. The deposit would be transferred to your friend, would be prudent...

    It depends what you're looking for in return. If you're looking to develop new business then don't bother, you won't get anything. For industry news and useful information just keep an eye on...

    They're obviously covering themselves just in case, but presumably your signature would be alongside today's date anyway, rather than the commencement of the tenancy?

    Indeed, speak to them to negotiate bringing their management to an end.

    Regarding the deposit, as long as you have an account with the DPS the agent can transfer it to your DPS account. If you...

    No, but helpful. You'd need to send a copy of the tenancy, breakdown of costs and have the statutory declaration stamped by a solicitor (costs no more than £5). Will take around 4-8 weeks before you...

    They're a bit gutless indeed. Far better to hit them where it hurts - pockets. Allagents and google are a good start to leave your feedback.

    One of my employees is currently studying for it, there's actually a hell of a lot to learn, some of it not particularly worded very well. You can do modular exams, costs a little more but might be a...
