I think once you are on a contract with a agent and just swapping addresses the fee should be half, on comparison to our last contract it only has the address of new property changed. Seems a little high of a admin cost just to amend the date cost and address.

Landlord Fees

For full information please go to https://www.jrhopper.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/JR-Hoppers-Landlord-Fees.pdf

Tenant Fees

There are no Administration Fees.
Prior to referencing a refundable Holding Deposit will be requested, the equivalent of 1 weeks’ rent, that will secure the property subject to full referencing being successful.
This Holding Deposit becomes part of the Tenancy Deposit (equivalent of 5 weeks' rent) which is held by the Deposit Protection Service for the duration of the tenancy.
Last updated at 06/06/2019, 2:34 PM by Mandy
Kindly note that legally, letting agents need to publish information about their tenancy fees, government-approved redress schemes and client money protection schemes on their website and on third party websites (on which agents are listed). For properties to lease/rent in England, agents need to keep this information up to date and precise on allAgents or specify within the property description.

Complaints Procedure

The company is owned and managed on a daily basis by Directors, Brian & Liz Carlisle. Any issues not resolved to your satisfaction by our skilled trained and qualified staff can be referred to them for action. The Company is also a member of the NAEA, ARLA, and the Property Ombudsman so these bodies, and their redress schemes will resolve in the unlikely event of you not achieving satisfaction in house.
