I self-manage a property in London and I used a letting agency to find my tenant. My contract with the letting agent states there is a fee to be paid for tenancy renewal (5% +VAT, periodic basis included). The tenant has contacted me well in advance of the expiration of the current tenancy term requesting to renew.
If I draft a new Tenancy Agreement can I avoid paying the letting agent’s renewal fees? Would it be likely they would actually take me to court?
