Landlord’s Fees

We take pride in operating with transparency at all times. Please see below for our terms & conditions and fees for landlords

Standard Tariff Of Landlord Charges

Michael Lavelle Estate Agents want you to be aware of the circumstances where you may incur a fee or charge in relation to services provided by us, including in relation to a tenancy arranged through us. This Tariff details our current fees and charges, which unless otherwise specified include VAT (which as at the date of this Tariff is 23%). The fees and charges shown are payable to, and will be invoiced by us.

All amounts due to us may be deducted from sums (including rent) received by us on your behalf before those sums are forwarded to you.

This Tariff is only a summary of parts of our Letting Services Agreement and Standard Letting and Management Terms. You should refer to those documents for full details of our services and fees and charges.

We reserve the right to amend the fees and charges in this Tariff to reflect changes in our operating costs. Where you have signed a Letting and Management Services Agreement no fees and charges in any amended Tariff will affect you unless the amendments are expressly permitted by your Agreement and have been notified to you.

Payable during the whole time (including all extensions, renewals, hold overs, and new agreements):

(a) a tenant introduced by us occupies the property you have instructed us to let or one of your other properties;

(b) a person introduced by a tenant introduced by us occupies the property you have instructed us to let;

(c) a person “associated” with a tenant introduced by us occupies the property you have instructed us to let – this includes some relatives and business associates and is fully defined in the Standard Letting and Management Terms;

Payment in full is due at the time the tenancy is entered into or extended or renewed unless rent is to be received by us. If rent is received by us payment is due quarterly in advance or if rent is due less frequently than that payment is due in advance on the dates rent is due.

Amount: (€700.00 min)

Initial let on a standard Part IV tenancy agreement: 8% of annual rent + VAT @ 23%

Renewal of a tenancy after 6 years is required, at the same fees. Unless instructed otherwise in writing, we register the tenancy on the landlord’s behalf, at the time of commencement.
