Recent research has shown a sharp increase in the rising cost of agency fee's having to be paid by tenants when looking for new property. Are you aware that when you place your property to let with an online letting agents or any local agency they charge fee's anywhere between £100 and £700 per applicant to apply for your property. This actually acts as a huge barrier for a lot of tenants and is often the reason the properties can sit empty for several weeks or months.

We are aware of agents who's policy is to not let your property until they have had 10 applications and their application fee is £310. As such before your house gets let they achieve £3010 in fee's regardless of whether it takes 3 or 4 months. All the while you receive no rent as the house is empty. Does that sound fair to you?

In today's market place it is increasingly difficult for tenants to save all the monies required to obtain a new property. Sometimes they have to pay an application fee, then an administration fee and then finally a documentation fee. This is all payable prior to having to part with any deposit or rent in advance. As you can see it suddenly starts to run into the thousands and prices out many ordinary individuals.

The scary thing for most tenants is that when they apply for a property with an agent and pay this upfront fee there is no guarantee that they will actually get the property. As such there is an increasing movement from tenants towards not applying via agencies as they know it is costly and often a waste of their money. As the landlord never see's any of the fee's paid by the applicants the only person who wins is the agent.
