I’ve posted about excessive service charges about Camden before. I have a flat with NO LIFT, NO COMMUNAL WATER FACILITIES, NO HEATING INC – just a standard hall way and I pay £1,500 a year. I think Camden Council is badly run by people who do not value the contribution that leasehold residents make in the area.
In a 5 year period the charge they make for managing ‘Management Charge’ has increased from £71 to £228.72 per flat. THATS A MSSIVE 318% INCREASE!! This is totally ripping off residents, how can it cost £228.72 to collect and send my invoice for the service charge!!
There is something seriously wrong here and I THINK IT NEEDS PROPER MEDIA ATTENTION
