Can an estate agent request a water and electricity deposit to be paid by a tenant, even though the account at the municipality is not in the tenant’s name. We also only receive an invoice monthly from the estate agent for water and electricity consumption. We have never even saw the bill from the municipality. I requested proof of our payments, but only received it once. We monthly took photo’s of both meters and submit to the estate agent.
