Reply To: Major Works billed as Service Charges


Dear All,
This came back from the Assignment Team ( which is the team dealing with sales of properties ). They seem to say this forum is actually where leaseholders were calling out for paying their service charge in advance. Is there evidence of this please? Quote below.

“The feedback we received from leaseholders (more often than not from the leaseholders’ forum) is that they want more regular updates about leaseholders’ liability for major works. I think it’s partly in response to cases where major works final accounts represent a big increase on the original S20 estimate. As a result, we’ve now taken the step of billing leaseholders each year for their share of any major works expenditure we expect to incur and we’ve checked that the lease allows us to do so.”
