renewal fee for letting agents
Further to our conversation about the letting agent wanting a 10% renewal fee when the tenants stay on past the initial 12 month period - which is up at the end of the this year - despite me already dispensing with their services as managing agents for the property in September as I was unhappy with their poor service.
I have unfortunately signed a fees agreement which mentions the 10% renewal fee but dont wish to now pay this as I feel it is completely unjustified and unearnt. they however have written to me disputing my reasons for sacking them and insisting on the renewal fee still being paid (and its a lot - the best part of £2000!!)
When I sacked the letting agents in September I took out a new tenancy agreement with the tenants commencing from October.
I would be grateful if you could write back to me explaining the advice you were giving me on the phone.
