    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

          You state that your lease requires you to have a carpet and if that is the case, it would be reasonable to sell the flat in a condition which complies with the lease. The purchaser cannot expect an expensive carpet or a brand new carpet, Your offer to fit a carpet or make an allowance seems to be reasonable...

          You are asking two questions, 1 is there a breach and 2 what if anything should be done about it.

          1 We cannot answer this question unless you state what you consider to be the breach of the lease and you let us know the actual wording of the lease. A breach is not determined by the freeholder...

        • Director discrimination possibly?
          A leaseholder is threatening bringing a discrimination case against company as they are the only flat who is not a Director and many directors have come and gone also a director is appointing directors as per the AOA and not holding any AGMs to endorse the appointments.There is no automatic right to...

          The old directors appear to have sold their apartments and are no longer involved so I suggest that you concentrate on the new directors and provide them with a list of suggestions in order of priority and let them have a reasonable amount of time to comply with the request.

          There was no tax advantage to be gained by not having a sinking fund, quite the opposite. Buy to let investors can deduct service charges from rental income so by reducing the service charges, the directors increased their personal tax liability.

          What I was getting at is that the freeholder does not have to enforce covenants and there is no come back for not doing so unless they are themselves breaching a covenant. If they don't covenant with you, as leaseholder, to enforce the covenant, they are doing nothing wrong by not enforcing it. Note...

          Considering all posts you need to understand you have to move away from company law & AoA and look at your rights as a leaseholder. You have stated this leaseholder understands the lease and RICS Code of Practice, therefore concentrate on what is not being done that should be done under the terms...
