OpenRent vs Upad or other online lettings agents - admin charge and referencing fee
I was wondering if anyone has had experience with online lettings agents.
With OpenRent's 'No admin charge' policy, it is difficult to cover the cost of referencing separately. I am thinking of using RLA's comprehensive referencing service. This means that if I go with Openrent, I have to cover the cost of referencing all the over 18s named on the tenancy agreement and any guarantors.
I'm considering going with Upad rather than OpenRent for this reason. I think the cost of referencing several potential tenants could add up to a lot and I don't think it's fair to get the final tenant to pay for it by building it into the rental fee.
Has anyone used Upad and do they have similar restrictions on admin charges?
