Recently we've pointed out that if the agency wished to remarket the flat they would have to pay for an energy certificate thing as well, adding to their costs.

In my neck of the woods, you would stand little chance of getting anything off. We do not seem to be having any problems shifting our rental properties. I always say to our customers that they are always wlecome to ask, but im talking £10-£25 a month. I could have let two properties three times on Saturday, so not much chance of getting too much off the rent.

I have managed to haggle my rent down by £20 a mth when i moved in before the recession. However, this seems to have increased my problems!
Rather than saving money i have been asked to move out as the landlord wants to get more money per month! Im tired of paying the fees that letting agents charge,and moving costs, this is the second time its happened now and i will be out of pocket again because i have a greedy landlord who wants to charge £800 a month for a two bed flat thats not worth that. What worries me is that i chose a letting agent because i wanted to feel more secure in a longterm let and the agents cant do anything to help. Also the prices in Bournemouth are going up not down! The landlords seem to charge whatever they want and people migrating here (my new neighbours) are quite happy to pay such high rent

This is a VERY one sided thread and I can't believe Martin endorses it in his weekly email.
I am fine with moneysaving when only a multi million dollar company loses a few pounds, but landlords are only human and many are just as close to the brink as anyone else in this recession. Many people haven't been able to sell, so have turned to renting.
This thread just stinks of robbing one moneysaver to benefit another and in a recession as well !, when some might be on the edge Martin has very kindly encouraged others to push them over the cliff.
I am disgusted at Martin. :mad:
