  • Renting

    Hi all
    I am moving into a rental property on the 9/1/12 the agent says I have to pay for the property from the 1st of the month is this allowed as I thought you pay from the date of moving in 9th - 9th each month.Also they want to charge me £180 + 80 to do a credit check on me & my partner despite the fact we have being paying £850m for the last 8 yrs with out missing a payment or any late payment.I have reference to support this.
    Pls advise

    You are charged from the date of signing, though actual payment date can be negotiable.

    They should not, IMO, be charging you for the credit check - firstly, because they gets their fees directly from the fees charged to the landlord; secondly, a credit check costs, like, £5.

      I think it depends on the level of check what the costs are, also the ref checks isn't just about a on-line credit check there is a lot more work involved.
