I purchased my flat under the Right to Buy. The Council is demanding a service charge for a period when I was still a Council tenant. Can they do this?

The Council can only bill you for services prior to granting of the lease if it is within the Reference Period, which is a period of 5 years from the date the lease was granted or a date where it is reasonable for you to have entered into the lease.
