Thanks Wendy, Thanks Paul, to have offered some views on my original question, whether or not it is legal and/or acceptable for camden to charge Major works as Service Charges.
Wendy, do you have more details? who is the assignment team? I cant imagine leaseholders willing to advance the payment for Major Works?! We at una house certainly did not ask for that!
Finally Paul, do you have any more info on the government better home funding? It is my impression that camden is using the “service charge tactics” to be able to bring incomplete major works back into 2015-16 fiscal year to get the funding. But of course there is no explanation or transparency on this and i believe it is a very very serious issue regarding the use of public money.

many thanks
