OFT vs Foxtons Case

Can I Claim Against My Letting Agent?

December 2010 Victory

We have already been successful on two occasions in Court against two letting agents when they sued our landlord client for unpaid rent renewal fee and commissions.  Not only did we Defend the claim our landlord client recovered the rent renewal commissions paid to the letting agent over a number of years.

The OFT v Foxtons court case has now opened the flood gates for landlords to stand up and take action.
Our Principal Solicitor, Ronnie Hutcheon who has been following rent renewal commission claims and the OFT v Foxtons case closely believes that action can now be taken to recover the hard earned renewal commissions owed to landlords over the years.

Any landlord wanting the return of the renewal commissions should seek advice from expert rent renewal solicitors for impartial advice.  R James Hutcheon Solicitor are able to advise landlords on a no win no fee basis.
So what all landlords should do now is contact R James Hutcheon Solicitors to consider if a claim can be made for the return of all rent renewal payments and commissions.

Law firm, R. James Hutcheon Solicitors have launched an 'Information Request' to private landlords that believe they have been charged disproportionate and unreasonable fees in respect of tenants renewing tenancy agreements with landlords.

Hutcheons Solicitors are asking private landlords to contact them if they feel they have been unfairly charged by a letting agency with respect to tenancy renewal terms in contracts.
