    The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 (sections 18 to 30) contains detailed requirements with which service charge payee has to comply. It has to circulate at least 2 quotations before it can undertake major works at cost of lessees, for instance.

    You are entitled to see proof of expenditure (invoices and receipts) by the freeholder/management company. Put the request in writing so that you have a record of what you asked for and when.

    Take a look at the Leasehold Advisory Service website for more information.
