Reply To: landlord charges more for meals than the standard meals rate


See paragraphs 6 to 20 headed as “REASONS – SERVICES AND OTHER CHARGES” in CH/3528/2006, it is on site.

Describes how charges, ineligible/Eligible, should work?

Though it is about rent restrictions I think it explains and discusses issues raised about service charges similar to the question posed.

The way I read it, if the figure is specified as an ineligible amount in the regs then anything over and above that is payable as part of the rent (Not services) unless of course you think it is too high (Different a ball game), if it is not a Park Lane restaurant kind of meal price I wouldn’t bother.
