I am set to have a hearing at the LVT over service charges and would appreciate advice. I would also like to know what other people who live in 2 bed tower block properties in Southwark are paying. My charges are almost £1500 a year which I find unbelievable.
One bedroom flat, Styles House in The Cut. The following are actual charges for year ending 31 March 2009 - I expect I'll get the following year at some point!
building insurance 171.11
lighting and electricity 97.55
estate grounds maintenance 98.57
care and upkeep 320.99
minor repairs 142.53
Total inc admin charges and ground rent £1803.48
