Landlords can avoid being stung with unexpected fees and charges when letting their property by choosing to let through myonlineestateagent.com.
The importance of using a trusted online agent has been highlighted by the recent publication of a report which has called for the laws governing traditional letting agents to be tightened.

Fortunately there is a trustworthy and cost effective alternative to unchecked agents.
