  9. Service charges effective from April 2019 to March 2020

    A reminder that from April 2019, and where it is appropriate, we will require some customers to pay an increased estate maintenance charge and some to pay a new service charge to cover the cost of lighting in communal areas. We first wrote to customers between 12 and 17 November 2018 to explain plans to introduce some further charges and to get feedback on the impact this might have. We tailored the letters to people’s circumstances and properties. We are now sending out annual letters that will confirm precisely what you will pay for your rent and for any service charges from April 2019 to March 2020. This Q&A explains more.
