Comment on agent fees
Agency fees in general in my opinion are a cost that should not be incurred by the tenant, it should be the landlord that foots these bills. Moving is always more expensive for the tenant and these fees only add to that. That said Searchers did their job well and performed well in getting everything sorted so in that sense I guess it's money well spent by the wrong party.

Thank you for your review Adam. Unfortunately I cannot comment on what was said during the viewing, as it was not myself who conducted the viewing. However the property was advertised on Rightmove with a figure equal to 6 weeks rent, but it was also on the market with another agent, who were advertising as 4 weeks + £100, so can only assume this is where the confusion had come from. Good Luck in your new home. ...
