Thorgills' fees are set out in full detail in our terms and conditions of business, which we will provide at your request. Under Thorgills’ terms and conditions, a client is liable to pay commission fees to Thorgills for the initial period of the tenancy and also for periods after the end of that initial period when the original tenant introduced by Thorgills remains in occupation whether under a new agreement, or when the initial agreement is extended, or when the tenant is allowed to hold-over (all of these being "renewals"). Where there is more than one tenant, renewal commission will be payable in full where any or all of them remain in occupation. Renewal commission will be charged in advance. The client will be liable to pay Thorgills' renewal commission fees whether or not any renewal is negotiated by Thorgills. This includes if a renewal is negotiated by another agent, and if the client does not require Thorgills to perform any additional services over and above the introduction of a tenant.
The following fees are calculated as a percentage of the total rental income for the length of the agreed tenancy term:
