My nephew has recieved a letter from the letting agents of the house he rents asking him to pay to renew his tenancy. £35 for 6 months and £45 for 1 year. I thought that only the landlord pays fees to letting agents. Can they do this? The agents he previously used also made this charge and with this agent, he was also charge a fee when taking on the tenancy. Again I thought only the landlords paid the fees. I would be very interested to know if these charges are allowed.
