I Am The Agent is offering this service for just £49, after the room share business has been expanding. More self-service agents are also challenging traditional high street agents.

Rebecca Peach, I Am The Agent’s Managing Director, says: “Often, renting a room is just as stressful as letting an apartment or house. You need to market it right in order to attract an ideal tenant. We filter all inquiries and introduce prospective tenants, and can provide tenancy agreements and credit checks if needed, making the whole process stress-free.

“With the current economic climate, we expect Rent My Spare Room to be one of our most popular services in the next 12 months, as homeowners look for easy ways to make extra money.”1

I Am The Agent describes itself as an online estate agency with a no-commission fee structure, instead charging transparent fixed fees for its services.

They charge self-service sellers £299, including VAT, and a fixed fee of £69 for their letting service.

Their website states: “We know that the process of renting a private property doesn’t stop when you have found a tenant you like.”2

It displays the Property Ombudsman logos for both sales and lettings, where Rightmove, Zoopla and FindaProperty are described as partner agents.
