Service Charge Demand – England

What is a service charge demand?

Where landlords have obligations to provide services to the leaseholders in a building, the leases will require the leaseholders to pay contributions to the landlord. There are many chargeable items which fall within the parameters of a service charge including insurance, maintenance, management fees, utilities, gardening, cleaning and more. Under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, service charge contributions should be demanded with a Section 18 Notice. This is the correct method to request and enforce contributions.

Why should I issue a Section 18 Notice?

Failure to follow the correct procedures could jeopardise the landlord’s ability to collect contributions. Leaseholders may argue that services charges are not payable unless properly demanded.
