Landlord & Buy to Let Awards ceremony
, the presenter Konnie Huq had an interesting story about a ploy used by a large firm of agents she now regrets having used.
The told her that they had found a tenant who was willing to rent her flat for five years. 'Think of it' they said to her, 'Five years rent sorted, isn't that great?'. Agreeing that it did indeed sound good, Konnie signed the forms, only to find that agency then required their commission for the whole five years paid in advance!
