    Not paying the rent on time

    I have some tennants that have cancelled their standing order for the rent (without telling us) and are now 3 days late with their payment. As a result we have incurred bank charges. What charges can I make to the tennant ?

    It depends on the wording of the Agreement. Unless it states explicitly that you can charge T, you can't. If it explicitly requires standing order payments, any other method is a breach and you could serve a s.8 Notice citing g12.

      You can claim the charges back from the bank itself, the charges are unlawful.
