Hi, apologies if this is a common question but I’ve tried the search option but not found the answer.
I decided to let my house 18 months ago when I moved in with my girlfriend and not knowing anything about it I used a letting agent. They’re a large concern covering one side of the country to the other, country wide you could say.
A pleasant lady came to the house and told us how easy it would be. They would take 10% each month and all we had to do was get the EPC and Gas safety check done and away we go. It really was made to sound as simple as that.
They’ve been nothing short of useless. The amount paid each month varies in amount and date paid, repairs have been poor etc etc. There’s a long list of issues that I won’t go into now.
The tenant has been fine but has now given notice to leave as she wants a bigger house having had a second child.
I don’t want to re let as I want to sell the house.
The agent wants £600 to end the contract. It’s in the small print but no mention has been made of this until now.
Is there any advice from members? I really don’t want to pay them after the poor service I’ve had and I feel annoyed, to say the leas,t that this fee wasn’t mentioned at the outset.
Thanks in anticipation.
