  • Which online letting agent offers best value of money?

    I'm looking at £39 from Visum Ltd advertsied on Rightmove until let (but just Rightmove for that fee) Anyone used this Visum service and was it effective? What about others? Do other sites (e.g. Prime Location) get many hits compared to Rightmove. I used to advertise soley in the local paper but these days I just don't get the responses to justify the escalating charges.

      Visum works very well.

      That also means I cannot share in any profits from any decisions made!

        I've used two: They both worked, but both demonstrated they (how, how unlike other letting agents..) did not understand LL/Tenant law...

        Sigh!!

          Hello,

          I am new to this forum and to the private rental market. Having just gone through a fairly turbulent contract renewal I have lost all patience with my management agent and have decided I want to move away from them as every communication from them creates more work for me putting...

          this is exactly why I recommended it as a question to ask. You should know that the agent works for you on your terms and so if this isn't something you want and the LA insists on it and has hefty fees, you can walk away. You can play ignorant and see if they try to pull the wool over your eyes by saying...

          Landlords should also know that in such case whatever fee the tenant paid to the agent belongs to them....

          You are right, of course, but I know at least one major letting agency whose policy is to send a letter to the tenant with an ultimatum; "Renew, and pay us XXX, or expect your notice."

          I guarantee that most of the landlords for whom they are acting don't know that this is the...

          Good idea to test them, but this is really not their decision and it is for the landlord to tell them what to do....

          prepare yourself a standard list of questions about issues that you know agents should be aware of and ask the same questions to each agent to allow you to compare responses. Questions such as
          1. How long from receiving the deposit should it be protected?
          2. When should I install a carbon monoxide detector?
          3. Do
          ...

          jpkeates Thanks for the heads up on that - I have looked at their terms of business and I will be removing them the Management of the property as they have made 7 errors in just over 7 months which is unacceptable especially as I am paying for the "Service" (areas of mistakes include communication,...

          Check your agreement with the agent - they're usually hard to shift while a tenant they're found is in situ.

          There's not one place which will do this for you I'm afraid.

          Allagents.co.uk is a review site for agents but it's completely unregulated, anyone can leave a review on there regardless of whether they've ever done any business with an agent or not. What you'll tend to find is that rival...
