    May try to sell - any good no sale no fee online agents?

    Sorry not strictly a letting question, but we may try selling our BTL, depending on what we can get for it. Anyone recommend an online estate agent that is no sale no fee?


    No there aren't, they all charge a fee either upfront or delayed. Try an independent local agent.

      These guys say they offer a no sale no fee option:

      Their small print says they normally charge £150 for cancelling within 3 months, but will waiver that as we're providing our own media.

      Currently examining small print.....but am I missing something or are these guys ok?


        Used to work for one, they have a one off payment of around £195 - this covers pics etc but it is refundable if you get NO viewings or reasonable offers having said that it is discretionary. if you are interested

          thanks, I am certainly favouring this approach. But any idea why they are messing around in this fashion? I suspect we will be charged for referencing....

          Remove your instructions now (hopefully nil to pay) - and don't choose any tenants already passed on. You need to know the name of every tenant that contacted them to avoid a problem. Ask them to disclose that (if they refuse you are absolved if you happen to get the same tenant so make sure it is ...

          I have recently advertised a property for let using a local independent estate agent. This will be the first time I have let a property, given a lack of any rentals in the area, the agents were keen and advertised said property at beginning of a week for multiple viewings together at the the end of...

          Not answering your queries does sound unprofessional, on the other hand if they are still awaiting the T's to complete the credit and reference checks this could be the hold up. I would probably give the agent and the T's one additional week, otherwise you are terminating any agreement.

          I think you need to give notice to the existing firm. If you engage someone else before your sole agency runs out, you'll have two lots of commission to pay.

          Thanks for all the help and advice with this. I've opted to get my own inventory check done instead of going with that of the Letting Agency and they agreed to it.

          If the Letting Agreement between a Landlord and their Letting Agent and the Tenancy Agreement between the Landlord, their Tenant and their Letting Agent have conflicting clauses which of them is right?

          For example, if the Letting Agreement states that the inventory checks will cost £100...

          Dear all,
          Does anyone recommend any review sites for letting agents that are based on the satisfaction of the Landlords, rather than the tenants?
          If not would anyone with experience of dealing with agents in Essex have any recommendations/advice?

          Either replace the agent if you live far away from the property, or self manage and cut out any agent.

          I have a great tenant and the previous Agreement has expired. I have instructed the Agent to draft a follow on Agreement (for a defined fee) but with the rent collection service removed.

          During the life of the last Agreement the Agent revised its T&Cs from those I signed up to. These...
