Complete prime residential letting agents are scammers. Really, the charges are through the roof. Upon checking into your flat, you will pay £180 admin fee and £120 reference fee. Upon checking out is where you will gt the shock of your life. They will charge £162 for a check out fee (even though real cost of the check out clerk is £100). Then they will try to hold a good chunk of your deposit. £5 for every burnt out lightbulb. £15 per any hook or nail you have installed. I don\'t even think the landlords of these properties have any idea that complete agency is running this scam. You could leave the flat in better condition than when you received it yet they will find a way to charge £100-300 in maintenance fees. Just be wary. Know that whatever you pay in rent you should add at least £300 or more for checking in and £300 or more upon check out. You could potentially pay £600-1000 in hidden costs if you leave the flat in perfect condition. Much more if you don\'t.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Reduce the ridiculous fees. It\'s so transparent that they are making a lot of extra money
