Guest post: tenant recovers illegal fee

July 16, 2013

Russ Jones from Abbeyhill, explains how, with the help of EPTAG, he successfully got his illegal letting agency fees back. 

After seeing an article in the Edinburgh Evening News in late 2012 about EPTAG holding a demonstration outside the offices of a letting agent, I decided to check out their website to find out more.

Even though I had moved and changed letting agents, I found an old ‘summary of charges’ from October 2008 for a flat I had rented from Edinburgh Letting Solutions (ELS). The summary listed the amounts for the deposit, months rent and then ‘Administration Fees’ of £50.
