I own four flats in a block of 16. The managing agent has been asking me for £30 per flat per annum as the flats are let out, which I am still arguing about as I don’t believe my lease entitles them to this. They also want to know details of my tenants, such as their phone numbers and whether they are on benefits.
I have always told my tenants that as I live around the corner they are to use my contact details in an emergency.
Even if I am away I have people locally whom I leave spare keys with and who will respond.
I am reluctant to give the managing agents contact details of the tenants. I don’t necessarily know which of my tenants are on benefits and don’t think I can pass this information on because of the Data Protection Act if I do know. They apparently have been asked by their insurers who will inflate the premium if there are any residents on benefits.
What do you think?
