    Outside car park lighting

    Hi I am a resident in a shared accommodation block of 40 people and one of our car park lights is out of action
    our manager says this is service chargeable on our rent but we think the landlord should pay instead ,who is right please.

    What kind of contract do you have for the shared accomodation and what does it say about chargeable services?

      Yes, its a landlord expense. Pass the bill on to them.

        At the end of the day someone will have to pay for this, to keep costs down (especially if it just need a new bulb or tube light) it's cheaper and quicker to get this done yourself or by your LL, the management company will most likely charge more than the cost of the item to get it fixed. This cost will then be reflected in your rent increase. I would just replace the item (if that is the issue) inform the LL that you have done so.

          If you are a leaseholder - the landlord pays and you pay him back (via the service charge)

          What exactly is a "resident in a shared accommodation block"??

            By which the manager can only mean that your rent already includes a service charge to cover such maintenance.

            If that is the case then you are already paying for the maintenance and it's just a question of getting the landlord (or his manager) to do what you have already paid for.

              As others have said, more info required. It is not clear from what you have said whether the relationship is tenant-landlord or leaseholder-freeholder.
              There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.
