The fees were very competitive compared to Romans and was the main reason that I opted for Prospect over Romans.

What agent could do to change your mind?
This Agency took a higher non refundable fee than all other agencies we visited before they provide us with any service. If it wasn't for the 500 GBP that we paid at the very beginning I would've looked for another apartment with another agency when they delayed our move in date

Comment on agent fees
i feel like the fees could have been lower as many other agencies have lower fees (i shopped around) i went with prospect because of the reputations of the team. The sales team I'm not sure met that expectation (a lot of mistakes and not enough communication), but the assistant manager and the after sales team were excellent.
