Service Charges

How we work out the cost of service charges

Charges are calculated based on costs likely to occur during the year and are set every April. We take into account what the actual cost was in previous years, what the rate of inflation is and any other factors that are likely to affect the costs.

Examples of things that may require a service charge include:

  • Meals provided in extra care schemes
  • Communal facilities within a sheltered schemeCa
  • Caretaking at a block of flats - cleaning, changing of light bulbs, minor repairs
  • Repairs and upkeep of communal areas of flats and sheltered schemes
  • Keeping communal gardens tidy and in good condition
  • Lighting in communal areas of flats and sheltered schemes
  • A lift at a block of flats
