Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I have a question about making signed AST’s available after end of tenancy and the tenant has vacated the property.
I’ve had a tenant come back to me nearly a year after leaving the property and demand a copy of the AST she signed.
1. Do I have to hunt this out and give her a copy ?
– If she were within her tenancy I would not even question it and would give her another copy – prob. a .PDF initially and then print one if she so insisted.
2. Can I charge her for doing so ?
– With all of my tenants I don’t charge any signup-fee’s, the rent’s the rent and that’s it. However, this is work that is outside what I would deem ‘the norm’ and I feel I should be recompensed – you know, only a £10 to cover time, postage etc.
