    Service Charge Template


    Does anyone know where I can find a template of a service charge invoice to be issued by an RTM or what information it would need to contain.

    Many Thanks

    A service charge demand should contain a clear description of what is being charged eg quarterly service charge contribution based on your share of x% of the total budget for the year ending 31 December 2019

    It should state the due date for payment if different to the date of the demand

    It should contain the name and address of the landlord for notices

    Details of the bank account, showing the name and address of the bank and the name of the account and the account number, should be supplied if not given elsewhere

    It should be accompanied by a summary of tenants’ rights and obligations




        Great thanks


          Sorry to bring up an old post. After what feels like an eternity I am finally in a position to issue the service charge.

          Regarding providing the landlords details for notices, the landlord is absent on our property so we don't actually know who he/she is never mind their address. What should we provide in this instance.

          The wording on the service charge template I have is "In accordance with section 47 and 48 Landlord and Tenant Act 1987, the Landlord’s name and address in England and Wales for service of Notices [including Notice in Proceedings] is......"

          Thanks in advance



            Its ok, I found it, the RTM company.


              I don't think that is correct, I believe that the details of the landlord are required as well. In your case, I would state that there is an absentee landlord and supply details if and when you receive them.

                Hello there

                I hope someone can help with answers to the following questions:

                1) Where one has legal grounds to appeal an FTT decision, is there a specific form or do you just write to the court providing grounds and requesting leave to appeal within the time limit?

              • Reply to Request to appeal an FTT decision
                Clerical errors can be corrected by the FTT, so it is worth reading carefully the decision and checking that the figures have been adjusted correctly. Sometimes it will fail to amend a figure or calculate the adjustment incorrectly. In these cases, a simple request to the Tribunal will result in an...

                Hi everyone,

                I would highly appreciate any contribution to this post.

                I'll get straight to the point: I am a leaseholder in a block of 8 flats in Leeds. One of the flats belongs to the Freehold owner (Landlord). Ever since I purchased this property we were dealing with a rather...

                Whatever the merits of the case, the MA could be much more helpful to the leaseholder, who is quite right, if the charge is not permitted in the lease, there is no obligation to pay it. So it would be in the MA's interests to simply refer to the clause which it is relying upon. A leaseholder has the...

                You need permission from the FTT in order to appeal against a decision and you should contact the FTT stating your grounds for appeal. The FTT will then either consent to or deny the appeal. There would be a fee payable to the Upper Tribunal, details of which would be sent to you if the appeal is allowed....

                The salient points have been highlighted by others above. I would suggest your next step is to follow Scott22's advice and contact LEASE for free advice providing them with a copy of your lease.

                It is highly likely the Managing Agent (MA) is within their rights to charge...

                I live in a first floor flat, with a strip of garden at the rear. There is currently an outside tap on the side of the house which is only accessible by one ground floor flat.
                I want to install an outside tap on the "communal" side of the house, so that we five flats who don't have direct...

                I recommend that you try to agree a private arrangement with the leaseholder of the ground floor flat. That is much simpler and cost effective than trying to arrange a separate supply....
