Hi guys, this is my first time dealing with letting agents and it unsurprisingly instantly warrants a thread.
I have been informed I need to pay a £360 'referencing fee' before I can move into my flat at the end of the month.
Am I getting mugged the fuck off here? Cos I swear to god I've never heard of anyone paying more than £100 to get their references checked, and even that seems extortionate (I don't even have any references?!)
I was gonna send them a reply asking them to detail out exactly why it costs this much and try and haggle down. Will this work?
Feel free to just vent below. Cheers.
