    Fee

    Hi
    My tenant wants me to write a letter to U/C , can I charge for the time if needed? I am not but then wondered?

    Do the decent thing, honestly
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

        You're allowed to charge the tenant for services that are in addition to the property let, but only if they're optional.

        This one's a bit of a grey area, because I'd guess you don't have to write the letter, but the tenant can't get anyone else to do it if you won't.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          What is the letter?

          If it's simply confirmantion that he is renting from you and what the rent is (because he doesn't have a written TA, or a s13 notice of rent increase, to show them) then it is needed to show that he has a liability to pay rent at that amount.

          Without such proof of liability for £xxx rent the DWP will not pay UC Housing Element, (or will only pay the olde rate not the increase) and then he won't have the money to pay you the rent.

          So it's in your interest to write such a letter if asked.
