BBC Breakfast Interview with Sean Hooker

On Wednesday 4th February, Property Redress Scheme (PRS) Head of Redress, Sean Hooker, was invited onto BBC Breakfast to discuss unfair fees being charged to tenants by their Letting Agent.

 

The news item concentrated on the controversial practice of charging lower fees to potential Landlords clients to attract their business and then charging tenants increasingly higher fees in order to cross-subsidize this cost.
