What agent could do to change your mind?
Fees are very high (over ‚£700 in total). Not sure if these are really justified.

Dear 'Patient.Tennant' Thank you for taking the time to leave your review and I'm very sorry for the difficulties you encountered. The safety of tenants is paramount and we insist that the required tests are undertaken before any tenant takes occupation. Occasionally, if remedial work is necessary, delays can occur which, although for your safety, can still be very frustrating when one needs to juggle work and moving arrangements. Ideally we would like these tests carried out before market ...

Comment on agent fees
Probably slightly disappointed at the assumption that I would pay rounded up fees when the house was empty especially as I'm a repeat customer. We had to spend time working through a daily rate to agree the actual fees payable. Will return to Spencers if the current tenants move out and will naturally run a comparison on fees with other agents.
