Comment on agent fees
In my opinion all agency fees are quite high in general. I do feel that if the agency did the referencing themselves and not have to pay an external agency to do this, then it might be more cost effective for people to get onto the private renting 'ladder' as the high cost of fees is discouraging/unaffordable.
