Letting Fees

Lettings fees can often be very confusing as agents
charge different fees for checks and admin.



As an open, honest and genuine letting agent, we believe in complete transparency of all of our tenant fees. We do not charge individual fees for each tenant as this can quickly escalate. Instead we charge a tenancy set up fee which is the same fee regardless of how many individuals are living at the property.

Please find below a list of the fees you are likely to encounter when renting a property through William Charles.
