The personal attacks in this thread are unnecessary.
All I did was view the flat, agreed verbally with the agent that I was willing to take the flat. When she mentioned the 2k admin fees for credit checks, lease agreement, etc, I told her I would think about it and revert back. I came here...
I got a flat to rent in Kempton park and out of the blue the agent told me about a R2000 admin fee that wasn't not advertised on the listing. I brought the issue to their attention but they wouldn't budge. Have I been living under a rock? Is the R2000 justifiable on a R5500 flat.
