I have a tenant who had a leak from the toilet cistern. She found a plumber herself who repaired the leak without telling the agent or myself as the landlord.
The repair cost an extortion£276!
When the agent later questioned their own plumber on the cost of the repair carried out they quoted a maximum of £85.
The tenant now obviously wants reimbursing for the £276 invoice.
Where do I stand as a landlord for covering this unauthorised cost?
