Reply To: Service charges


The landlords are saying that the rent charge is £405 pcm and the service charge, including ground rent, is in addition to this, and is covered by the clause in the tenancy agreement as mentioned in my post. They have provided us with copies of invoices and letters which they sent to the tenant which have not been paid, and are now requesting us to pay them as there are now substanital arrears.

Looking at the paperwork we have from the landlord (lots), I am going to go with your last paragraph about the genuine liability, and only pay from April this year when we first knew about these charges.
