There was no Misunderstanding though-I was very clearly told that unless I gave feedback I could not do another viewing, that I had not given feedback when I had, and I was also told that a 530 viewing would be within the estate agents personal Time and therefore was being done as goodwill. thanks again. ...

Terribly high. Higher than prestigious Bath agents. £100 guarantor fee, double fees for two people (even if they are a couple). Online it says £700 applicant renewal fee which though clearly a mistake, the staff member thought was the actual amount you would pay after 6 months to renew your tenancy.
