Should I charge for Accountant's reference?

I would be gratedful for opinions/practice on charging for requests for Accountant's reference  from lettings agents, banks, Home Office etc. This is obviously references for clients.

I have not covered this aspect in my enagagement letter.

My thinking is to charge £25+VAT as admin fee. Would this be reasonable? Should I charge at all? Charge more?

Thanks
