Calling all landlords can I ask what % do you pay for fully managed letting fees.

New to this lark but think it's 10%.

7%. Should have been 10% but we haggled.

Really, haggling over how much to pay someone whom you have entrusted to manage a valuable investment.

OP, is it a short or holiday let? In which case the fee you suggest would not be unusual for a top end agents. Foxtons is 26%+VAT, and 17%+VAT for a long let.

Royston, renting property is a business. If you pay full whack for everything and don't haggle, you would never make any money. In my experience, paying more does not always lead to a better service.

9.6% incl. VAT.

As PP said, it's a business. In my neck of the woods, it's also a business where there is a lot of demand and limited supply, so agents let me know upfront that they could negotiate.

Roystonv - they could have said no!
