The service charges that you pay as a leaseholder are your share of the cost of managing the property, block or estate that you live in. It also goes towards paying for services provided by us and carrying out repairs to the communal parts of the block or estate as well as individual charges.
All of these charges are made in accordance with your lease. If you would like a copy of your lease or have any queries about service charges please contact us.
We will usually send you an invoice in April for all service charges apart from repairs, maintenance, block cleaning and safety checks. An invoice for these charges will be sent before 30 September each year for costs incurred during the previous year
Not all the below charges apply to all leaseholders so it is worth checking your lease to find out exactly which services you have to pay for. If we need to introduce any new service charges we will consult you first. You can read a full summary of your rights and obligations for more information on what service charges you need to pay.
Ground rent is the rent charged for the land on which the property is built. It is not a rent for the actual property itself. We charge you a fixed annual ground rent of between £10 and £30, in accordance with your lease.
