I am coming to the end of 1 year contract, 29th August 2020 with the tenants/ agent and the agent is asking for a renewal agreement fee of 240 incl vat.  The contract signed shows a renewal fee of 114 incl vat, can they raise this without warning?
Also as previous tenant  (with the same agent) was on a rolling agreement, it was not brought to our attention that the new agreement would require yearly renewal.  The agreement with the agent was for a Tenant Introduction Only Service .  It seems we have signed an agreement without their fully explaining the difference from previous agreement.  Should they not have been better at bringing this to our attention?
They are also requesting an EICR certificate which becomes effective with new tenancy agreements. 
The question is can we just let the original 12 month agreement roll as with previous tenants and just not sign a new agreement as requested by the agent and therefore avoid having to pay the yearly fee requested by the agent?    If you sign a agreement for Introduction only, can they really enforce a new agreement ?
 The tenants would be happy for a rolling agreement.
