Letting agents are professional organisations that manage the rented properties of private landlords. Their day-to-day business covers a wide range of services from:
- Advertising the property
- Tenant viewings, enquiries and reference checking
- Deposit and rent management
- Dispute management
- Legal advice
Letting agents will charge the landlord for their services - usually a percentage of the monthly rental value of the property. Letting agents may also charge tenants an admin fee for managing their details, such as reference and credit checking and managing their deposit. They may also charge a holding fee, which is a percentage of the tenant’s deposit, to ensure that the property is secured for them.
Letting agents often come under the same branch as an estate agent due to the nature of their services, however many agents deal exclusively with residential lettings. They often have particular expertise in their local area and will be able to give general advice on the rental market - alternatively, refer to the Citylets Property Rental Report.
Find a letting agent
To find an agent, use our directory of online letting agents. Also refer to sources such as ARLA - the Association of Residential Letting Agents, or your local council for advice.

Use the city search to browse by city, or simply type in a name, town or postcode for a more detailed search. The directory will provide you with a comprehensive list of agents in your area.
