Customer Question

Hello there. I have a question regarding my letting agent who is saying he not required to fix my sink and wants to charge me for it. It seems like such a minor thing to complain about but I've lived here for 6 years, I employ professional cleaners and gardeners and recently had a rental increase. For him to charge me for this has made me so cross.

Based on your circumstances, I do agree that charging you for fixing the sink is unreasonable and potentially unlawful.

The terms of your tenancy agreement will have an effect in regards ***** ***** matter as well.

What is the charge amount for the sink?

Thank you.
