So I'm looking to rent a shop, everything is fine I just need to pay my deposit and the property is secured.
I've never done anything like this before so I just wanted to get some feedback.
The rent is £500/m - The estate agent wants £450 straight away (£350 for an admin charge and £100 towards the rent)
Then prior to moving in he wants another £900 to put in some sort of scheme just in case I mess up the shop before leaving. So £1350 in total, £350 for the agent and £1000 as a deposit which he says is refundable I when I leave if everything is OK.
So yeah I reckon I'm getting a good deal as far as the property is concerned but I just wanted to see if this is common practice.
