I would never pay a fee upfront, a legitimate estate agent only charges a fee once you have seen the place and they need to do a credit check. In fact it's illegal for any agency to charge upfront fees.
Here's a few discussions about them

Granted these are all a few years old but if it's the same company I can't see that things may have changed much

    Best to do this in person. No reputable letting agency charges a fee. You will obviously have to pay a deposit once you have chosen a property.
    You will find Zones 1 and 2 very expensive - unless you are an executive or similar.
    Even Zone 3 (Wood Green) seems pricey.
    I have a quite ordinary ground floor studio in Zone 3 and the rent is £170 per week
