A transparent service - there's no other way!

There's been a lot in the press this week about letting agents clearly displaying their fees within their advertising material.  This has referred to the compulsory charges that tenants must pay to rent their property.  The Advertising Standards Authority raised this issue following a widely publicised advert that did not make it clear that the agent would add an administration fee to the price they'd quoted their client. 

The ASA now insists that advertisers must include all compulsory fees and charges within the quoted rental price.  The ASA's chief executive was quoted: "Hidden fees are not only unfair, they hit those who are struggling hardest. Our ruling today makes clear that [property] agents need to get their houses in order and treat potential tenants fairly."
