My fixed term agreement has come to an end and I got an email from my letting agency who requested an increase in rent as well as a renewal fee of £120. “The terms of the renewal are that an extension of the original Agreement may be terminated by either party giving to the other as the case may be not less than two months written notice to coincide with a rent due date.”
I emailed them back about the renewal fee which I find totally unjustified since the agreement is basically rolling on a periodic basis and told them I would like to discuss this with the landlord. Here is their reply:
“It states in your agreement that the administration fee is paid on a renewal or extension of the agreement of £100 + Vat. The reason for the renewal is because the Landlord has requested a rental increase, the deposit scheme requires a new set term for the tenancy and also the Landlord requires a new set term tenancy to be drawn up.
The Landlord has also requested that we discuss the renewal of the tenancy with you and this is also why we manage the property on his behalf.”
Any advice on how to proceed?
