Tax statement from letting agents?Make Text Bigger
My new letting agents normally sends me a monthly rental statement, but on my May 2016 statement there’s a deduction of £75.00 plus vat.
I did received an A4 sheet of paper from the letting agent with the last six months rental and deduction as a tax statement, but thought nothing of it! I questioned the amount with the letting agents and stated I have an accountant who deals with my tax issues and had not requested these details?
The letting agents says it was part of the agreement I agreed and signed. I stated the monthly statement that’s all I needed and I should have been told of this amount before signing. Letting agents replied they are unable to pay back the £90.00 but in future will not take this payment!
Can anyone say if this is legal?
