  • service charge payments
    Squeaky
    Hi, there are 36 flats, 12 flats per block where I live. My lease says my contribution is one thirty sixth for a 2 bed. Looking at the service charge payments provided I can't work out what percentage the other flats pay, some are 1 and 3 bed as the amounts noted are different for the same size flats....

    Is this £550 for one garage, or £550 for all 33? £550 for one garage would require a section 20 notice, as there is no routine work that will come to that much. £550 for 33 means you are arguing about less than 55p.

    The calculations may be wrong but you are still asking the wrong question.

    The lease will specify what repairs/maintenance (etc) are to be carried out under the lease. (X)
    The lease will specify what proportion of X you pay.

    If the lease says work includes work on the...

    My son is a leaseholder in an ex local authority flat that is now owned by a housing authority. I have recently been checking his service charge bill and received a summary of charges and copies of the repairs invoices. When I matched up the invoices to the summary I discovered that every invoice had...

    The lease only seems to allow the actual administration cost. Mine allows reasonable fees of a managing agent.

    It sounds to me as though they have switched from an overall fee to a percentage, rather than charging both. Charging both is likely to be unreasonable for day to day costs....

    The lease says - all other costs incurred by the Landlord in or in connection with maintenance or management of the building.
    Which seems to mean they can charge anything they want.

    Can you tell me where it says he can only recover the actual cost of repairs as...

    Thanks for the replies. I am trying to understand the figures and lease information, so I apologise for my level of explanation or understanding. On the Statement of anticipated service charge expenditure It states my contribution is £550 for the garage, lease states one thirty third. So I worked...

    Churchill would have hated that last sentence: "The bottom of to which I cannot get?"

    Joking apart, what the &!%@! does Universal Credit calculations have to do with service charge admin fees?

    Accepting LKP is busy these days (only a handful of people) I'd suggest...

    They can only charge what is allowed in the lease, if the lease makes no mention of an admin fee then it is not recoverable.

    If your FH does some work and it costs him £100, he can only recover £100 from you FOR THOSE WORKS, however it is acceptable for a big S20 building project to add...

    There only explanation is that it's an admin fee and they can't show it separately because of the way Universal Credit is calculated.

    Local councillor was more helpful than MP but nobody seems to know the legal standpoint.

    LKP are swamped with the leasehold houses and doubling...
