The terms of your lease will determine whether you are responsible for contributing towards the cost of running the resident warden’s flat. You should check your specific lease terms about this point. Generally most retirement property leases will contain service charge clauses allowing the landlord to recover the expenses incurred in maintaining a resident warden’s flat. This charge is classified as a service charge and therefore its reasonableness can be challenged at the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber).
