The British High Court ruled landlords are being charge unfair commissions on tenancy agreements by the largest estate agent in the country, Foxtons. Mr Justice Mann ruled that leasing agreements made by Foxtons, which operates mainly in London, unfairly overcharged commission to landlords. The Judge described Foxtons’ agreements as traps and timebombs. Big Removals cannot condone the illegitimate and unfair exploitation of landlords and would never exploit a customer with any removals service quote.

Big Removals learned a landlord renting out a typical two-bedroom property costing £15,000 a year would have paid Foxtons about £1,650 a year in commission. Over 14 years on an existing agreement this would entitle the landlord to reclaim an estimated £23,100. This commission would increase if the tenant purchased the property, with Foxtons claiming entitlement to a full real estate commission for the properties sale. For more information the High court Ruling on Foxtons contracts visit the Times Online; buy-to-let landlord article.
