Comment on agent fees
I felt some of the fees were out of kilter and had more than doubled since October 2013 eg inventory at ‚£270 I would expect this to be ‚£80 for a 1 bed costs of ECP ‚£90 + vat vs ‚£35 externally handling deposit ‚£90 from ‚£40 only 6 months or so ago. These are not really justified. Thank you
