I’m here asking for advice about the 180 pounds check-out fee the estate agent asking for after we left the apartment at the end of June (we were tenants for two years). The estate agent and the tenancy agreement says that “I have to pay the cost of a check out 180 pounds at the end of the tenancy” and that the landlord did the check-in fee at the start of the tenancy. However, I also read about the illegal fees for pre-existing tenancy agreements (entered before 2019), that it is now illegal for estate agents/landlords to ask for various fees. Therefore, I am wondering: is asking for a check-out fee illegal?
Thanks for the help!
