Hi!

Quick Question:

I've just relet my flat for the first time, so have had to learn the procedure of check out, deposit return, check in etc.

Can you explain why I am paying stamp duty on this service? It's only a fiver, so no major hassle but I wasn't aware of this need, since the contract between me and the agent was signed over a year ago and duty was payable against that then. Why am I paying the duty for a contract signed between tenant and agent?

It was an expensive month what with check out fee, check in fee and tenancy agreement all coming to 180 pounds. Is this normal?

Plus I have authorised the fixing of my bath, but am still waiting on the insurance company to confirm that they will pay this..... the saga continues
