The first thing is to gather together all the information that has been sent to you regarding the major works - this may have been over a number of months or even years. Read it through carefully and note what work they are intending to do. If the work has already been done, you need to check it to ensure it all looks OK. You may not be an expert, but just use common sense.
Run through their calculations - does it add up, have they included something twice in error (I find this a common mistake). Have you been charged for work to leaseholders flats?
If you can find no fault and the charge seems to be due, then contact Southwark Council
and discuss financing arrangements. If you do nothing they can start charging you fines so you should contact them and come to an agreement over payment.
