Comment on agent fees
Their fees are not transparent and extremely high. 250 for new tenants, 90 for contract renewal, 180 for check-out. If they treated us like customers we would be more open to paying them, but they are breaching all their contractual requirements, they do not know how to manage properties, they are not organised and they are avoiding any communication. They have not responded to any of the three emails in the last two weeks. Unacceptable.
