Just called up to ask about a property and asked for information for the fee's involved...
£150 for the tenancy agreement
£75 pp for a credit check
£90 admin fee
£50 for something else, I stopped the guy on the phone from talking at this stage! £440 for fee's?!?!?! No wonder that house is still vacant, even though the monthly rent is great the initial fee's make it totally unrealistic. It would take us 3 months to make that money back in saved rent!

Wish i could contact the landlord directly!

You can. Just contact the Land Registry, on line, and for £4 you can get the n/a of the owner of the property who is presumably the landlord.

Same thing happened to us! We paid £900 total deposit and they were taking £600 for “missing items and cleaning fees”. One of the missing items they said we took was a half empty pot of paint that they later admitted could’ve been removed by the landlord! Very rude staff and once you agree to the deposit they won’t reply to any emails! Disgusting service ...

We have had nothing but issues with Countrywide in York, who now seem to have changed names to Bridgfords but are still part of Countrywide. When we moved in we paid nearly £500 in fees, on top of our deposit and first months rent. We got ...
