Changing Tenant Fees for Letting in Weybridge

Letting a property is a viable option for so many people in the Weybridge area, where you are just starting out, downsizing, or because trying to own a property is too expensive. Most Tenants are charged excessive fees when using a Letting Agent, this will have most likely impacted you directly, or may impact you if you decide to rent in the near future.

These tenant fees can reach in excess of £400.00 sometimes per tenant, just on the administration costs! Other fees may include a holding deposit to reserve the property, changes requested to the tenancy agreement by the tenant, early termination of the tenancy (if requested by the tenant), late payments in the way of fines. The cost of these can be staggering and may leave you struggling to move or with the thought of staying put.

Feeling a bit down? Here’s some great news!

On June 1, 2019, the administration fees will be vanishing for good. That means you save up to £400 upon signing your new rental agreement.

Yooodle is one of the top letting agencies for Weybridge and the surrounding Surrey area and they have never charged fees for tenants wanting to use their services. What does this mean for you? Less hassle and an easier process of finding a place to let for 2019.

What you can do to protect yourself against fees in Weybridge in the UK:
∙         Make sure to look at all paperwork and agreements you are to sign and read the fine print.
∙         Although letting agents are not allowed to charge a tenant the fees, they may still. So be vigilant and alert. Fines for first time violators are £5,000 and thereafter will be an “ultimate fine” as long as the offence is within a 5-year period.

As Lord Nick Bourne of Aberystwyth said:
~"It has been clear throughout that this is a bill that we all support, and one that will deliver important changes to the private rented sector, improving lives for millions of tenants."
