Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Could you please explain your situation a little more?
Sorry for the delay, was just in Court. Does the lease/agreement allow the Landlord to levy a charge?
The Landlord can NOT charge you this fee. The Landlord can ONLY charge you actual costs for what has been used. Nothing else.
You should write to the Landlord and say he is in breach of the law. If he does nothing then get a local Solicitor to write to set out the legal position and say you will get a Court declaration if he does not comply.
If he still does not respond you can seek a Court order saying he can not charge this.
You would need to complete form N208:
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
