About service charges
Service charges are payments made by customers to cover the costs of providing estate management services and the upkeep of common parts.
Costs are tailored to individual properties and schemes. You are provided with accurate statements of actual and estimated costs.
If there is a significant change to services, the group will consult with affected residents and any recognised residents' association.
You can read more about service charges in our service charge guide - Your Service Charge Explained.

This notice is just for information and you do not need to take any action now.
We've looked to provide further information about some questons you may have after receiving this letter from us in the post.
