Is Our tax file actually the property of the client?

Can a new agent ask for our tax file on the basis that its the clients property. My initial reaction is take a running jump (or take all the papers out and send them just the file :)).

Obviously they can have copies of tax returns, permanent notes etc etc.

Anyone had experience of this?
