    I have a major works bill where 500k total works taking place and nearly 15% council management fee added on top.
    Is this too much? What % is reasonable and is there any way to get this excluded/cut back as we pay council tax,
    as well as annual leaseholder service charge?

    There is no cross-over to Council Tax and the law is imprecise in this area anyway so councils have lots of leeway.

    The issue of the management fees for works is complex, and links back to an LVT case (LON/00AG/LSC2012/0791). LVTs get on side with leaseholders if they are 20% or more, but it does depend upon exactly what is covered.
