  1. Well I had my meeting with them today. Not that it was particularly useful. I asked them what the fees were for and they couldn't give me an answer. They seemed to think it was quite acceptable for me to pay a fee for no work been done and that there was no way around it as I had signed the contract. Looks like i'll have to take it up with the OFT to get any further with it.
  2. That's great, thanks. Least I have a few extra bits to use to argue against them now. I'll let you know what they say on Wednesday!
  3. Thanks for all the great replies. I have already asked them where the fees go before they agreed to a SPT and at the time they said it was for changing the contract and also the fees for the TDS (this is crap as the TDS have a set charge of £15 a tenancy I discovered) But I will be asking on Wednesday again about what the fees would be for if moving onto a SPT. They didn't put an S21 in place when we moved in luckily, so that's one less thing to worry about. Do you know of any documents that may back up my case about the fees being unfair?
  4. I have been emailing my estate agent to try and get out of a £92 fee they want to charge for moving from a AST to SPT. I've heard people say to ignore the requests for money and just carry on, but they have a clause in the contract that they will deduct the money from the deposit if you don't pay up within 21 days. It's taken a while to get them to agree to a SPT, and they only did after I spoke to the landlord directly to discuss it. Prior to that it was going to be a £92 fee every 6 or 12 months. Does anyone know any ways of getting around the fee? I'm going in to the office to see them on Wednesday as they take ages to respond to my emails and never answer any tricky questions. I've seen in the unfair terms in tenancy agreements from the OFT a few terms they appear to be violating but I would rather have a few more things I can throw against them. Cheers, Simon
