6-month break and service charges
For the first time, I am letting my flat in London via an agency - I normally do it myself. They want to put in a 6-month break, which is something I haven't done before. Is this reasonable? If the tenants then leave after 6 months, should I expect the agency to pay back a pro rata fee - bearing in mind they expect a renewal fee if the tenants stay after one year?
The agency also expect the landlord to pay service charges. Is this reasonable?
