in short we can charge it as we can!?
There is a point in that and at £120, I would agree. I might agree were it a simple lease and small closely held operation, and/or well organised so that checking up to date information was easily done.
With many schemes with RTMs ,RMCs and party to the lease managers, the amount of work and people involved are rather more than the traditional set up that many have in mind.
In fact it’s not really the job of the agent, it is that of the landlord (even though they may delegate it) as the notice is in part information, which might be passed to the agent to note, but the implications of the transaction that has triggered the notice.
It starts several steps that the landlord must take, or the agent on his behalf, to protect his interest and rights. All of that has been occasioned by the tenant’s action. Until then the landlord was minding his own…..
Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.
