Thanks for all the comments in particular the Leasehold Advisory Service (www.lease-advice.org). I found out yesterday that the current Mayor of Bermondsey (Eliza Mann
) lives at one of the properties in the blocks in my section affected by these excessive Major works / Section 20. There is a meeting next week with some of the major works team to look at these figures with leaseholders and the mayor. In the interim I have put a number of questions to Southwark. The impresssion I get is you have to fight these excessive charges. I will keep you posted.
