I have been a Peabody Tennat for over 20 years. I changed flats in the early 90's and have had 6 rent reviews since. I have appealed all but one of them and had my service charges cut in half. However there are still many unwarranted charges resulting in 100,000's profit on services, if all estates are included, for a non profit making charity. This breaches the requirements of the Charity Commission's reequirement for giving a body charity status.

I have also discovered that all of my appeals went before a rent assessment committee not a rent assessment tribunal. There is a legal difference between these bodies. This is a breach of Article 6(1) of the Human Rights Act 1998. I noticed it too late to apply for a judicial review, but other tennants should bear this in mind if appealing.
