I am looking for information, from reasonably credible 3rd party
sources, about reduced commission fees (%) paid to estate agents
(="letting agents" when they let instead of sell property) in north
London, UK.

10-12% for finding a tenant and an add'l 5-7% for managing the

Basically I want to talk them down from these crazy prices and need
better market information.  I need something within the last 3 years,
