My estate agent found a tenant for me and sent me a bill for £1,000 plus vat for finding me a tenant.
The following year the tenant decided to renew for another year. The agent then sent me another bill for £1,200 (incl vat) as renewal fee.
When I asked why the same amount had been charged, the agent said if the tenant would have left, I’s have had to pay same amount for finding a new tenant.
But …. I said …… the tenant did not leave but just renewed.
I find it difficult to accept- has anybody has any experience?
