When letting a property out through an estate agent, what is the industry norm?
When letting a property out, through an estate agent, on a 'let only' service, as a industry norm, I know different estate agents have different rules. Assume it is a 1 year contract with the tenant, and I as private landlord is managing the property. The estate agent finds and introduces the tenant. If the tenant renews the tenancy for another year, is the landlord and tenant (tenant, if any at start) liable for fees (renewal) charged at start on the previous contract, to be able again to the estate agent, as they have introduced the tenant at the beginning. If yes, can the agent charge this fee continuously every year of renewal? Please note I would like to know the general industry norm, as the agent provided the 'let only' service at the start. This differs from provider to provider.
