  • Payment to such bodies must be recorded by the landlord or his agent to offset against tax and to enable bookkeeping and statement verification.
  • Agents are not permitted to order such work until the landlord has lodged cleared funds to pay in full or there is sufficient rent in cleared funds available to pay for the works.  Exceptions include "Agent of Necessity"
  • An agent instructing a contractor on behalf of his landlord client will have to pay the contractor even if the landlord does not!
