Fees have gone up a considerable amount they were around ‚£100 a year ago and now most are around ‚£150 black katz were the most expensive. Open rent where you deal with landlords directly charge only ‚£20 for fees. I know you need to make money for your service but it seems a big leap from last year and is one of the priciest.
