Letting Agents

Does any one know what my right are concerning an over charge of Service Charge taken from my rental income by my Block Management and Letting Agent. To explain. I have a property which  the Head Landlord demands Ground Rent, and is currently the Letting Agent and was also Block Management when this hapoened. During this time I was over charged service charge and this was taken from my rental income. They are now denying this and refusing to refund me. They are no longer in charge of the Block Management and from next year will not be my letting agent. They will still request and invoice me for Ground Rent. My question is would I be within the law to deduct what they owe me from the invoice for Ground Rent?

    As this was  a business to business transaction, you have no consumer rights I'm sorry to say. It is not usually a good idea to offset money owed to you with money owed by you
