How much in general I have to pay to the agent for finding property to rent?

Is there some percent from the sum of property rental or an exact amount and every agent has its own fees?

  • I think that in most case the tenant does not pay anything and that it is the landlord that pays the agent to find tenants.

  • Generally landlords pay the agent a commission fee. Agents do charge admin + referencing fees which could be £100 -£300 pp. Sometimes tenants do pay an agent if you recruited them to source you a property or what is called a Property Finder's fee. Hope it gives you some indication. Cheers, Mel

  • Most letting agents will offer a free service to find you a property as they are effectively paid by the Landlord. As the other respondent has rightly said you will have to pay an adminsitration charge to cover the Tenancy Agreement and Inventory along with a referencing fee. This may not apply however, if you rent privately e.g. find a property through gumtree and the like.
