Service charges

On many of our houses we have a charge which will cover services.

These can cover:

  • Maintaining communal landscaped or grassed areas
  • Stair lighting
  • Communal electricity supplies
  • Communal area window cleaning
  • Back court maintenance
  • Property maintenance costs of common areas at sheltered housing

We set a charge that simply covers the actual cost of providing the service with a very small management fee. Service charges can also be covered by Housing Benefit/Universal Credit for those tenants that qualify.
