I visited twice a 4 bedroom house on Hawthorne Rd with the agent Matthew Hayward from Central Estate. I was interested in renting the property but I wanted to know more about the terms and the agency fees. I went to their office and Matthew Hayward described to me the agency fees: a total of £480 for my wife and I !!!!.... £240 for the contract and administration and another £240 for the reference checks. A complete rip off. I had to leave and give up that property and was completely guted by the behaviour of those rogue agents who charge fees, which have nothing to do with the service they offer.
What agent could do to change your mind?
Simply not charging rip off fees and earn their living in a honest way...
