There is a real variety of lettings agents from local to international that are available to the next active landlord, guarantor or tenant and noticeably a wide variety of agency fees to go with them – Some more inclusive than others. Mishon Mackay’s agency fee to date remains competitive across the board and we avoid the ‘drip feeding’ of fees, an all-encompassing fee that remains the same with no extras along the way. Mishon Mackay endeavour to empower our clients with the knowledge regarding our fee structures and services in a result to remain transparent to all our clients whether it be our landlords, guarantors or tenants.

The most important thing is to shop around and ask lots of questions. Make sure you are clear on the agents charging structure, what is included in the fees and what isn’t. Above all, a good agent is trustworthy. They should be happy to answer all your questions and be upfront about their fees, services and procedures. All the paperwork should be transparent and easy to understand.
