Service charges and other issues
A guide to service charges, administration charges, ground rent, recognised tenants associations and forfeiture.
Usually, the lease simply provides for the landlord to recover expenditure on maintenance, repair and upkeep of the building, including management costs. The landlord is reimbursed for his expenditure, but is not given the opportunity to make a profit from the management. Where the landlord wishes financial reward for his expertise or agency, he must make sure the lease makes provision for this.
