Letting agents accused of double charges

A word of warning for landlords, and reason to keep a close eye on your letting agent, it seems some like to get paid twice for the same job.

Letting agents have been accused of double charging, getting both the tenant and landlord to pay for the same services, such as reference checks , or the renewing of tenancy agreements.

The insurance company, Direct Line have been investigating the problem, and have reported finding one London letting agent charging a landlord £670, for altering the date on a tenancy agreement, then having the cheek to charge the tenant £90 for the very same service.
