Greetings!

I am planning to have my wife move from outside of the UK to where I live right now.

Visa aside (about that I have done extensive research for a smoother process), I would like to know usually what kinds of fees are needed and how much do you spend on adding one tenant to the lease.

Hopefully I can plot a more accurate financial estimation for the transition. :D
Thanks in advance!

Depends upon how reasonable your landlord and agent are. They typically don't like to break an ongoing lease but a Letter of No Objection takes care of that aspect for the ECO. My tenancy agreement had expired and was just rolling over month to month. I paid £60 to the agent to draft a new contract with my wifes name on it and I had the landlords consent. I live in the North West, they may charge a lot more in other parts of the country.

I sent the new and current agreements off as part of the accommodation appendix to the application.

Unless you enjoy an Assured Shorthold Agreement, your Landlord would be well advised to create a Joint-Tenancy, for which and as stated, a fee may well be incurred.
Failing that a Letter of Agreement from the Landlord/Agent is required.
