Service Charge Disputes

Brady Solicitors’ deep knowledge of service charge matters, combined with a meticulous approach to preparation ensures residential service charge disputes are resolved successfully at the earliest possible stage.

Taking the stress out of service charge disputes

Service charge disputes can be time-consuming and stressful as well as leading to significant cash-flow problems. Our service charge solicitors collect most undefended debts within 3 weeks, and the rest within 3 months. We also offer outstanding legal support, good documentation and clear communications to help carry you over the line when you are facing a service charge dispute.

Whilst you can be assured of our strong track record on residential service charge disputes when leaseholders do decide to defend their non-payment of arrears, we place an equal focus on measures to prevent service charge arrears occurring in the first place. By focusing on ‘debt reduction’ as much as ‘debt collection’, we help our property management clients to minimise service charge arrears occurring, leading to better cash-flow, improved block management and happier leaseholders.

We feel we have an expert partner on our side supporting our arrears collection. Using Bradys making our block management projects easier, educates our team and fundamentally makes our client relationships stronger.



I was very satisfied with Brady Solicitors. They were very helpful and if I did not understand things they were always there to help. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.

Managing Agent


Since using Bradys for the last 18 months our service charge arrears situation has completely reversed. Not only have the collected arrears that have hung round for ages but they have reduced the overall debt considerably including on complex freehold estate rent charges.



Brady’s has recently carried out multiple lease extensions, with mine included. These have taken place in good time, and I have been informed of the various steps of progress in a pleasant and knowledgeable manner. Many thanks.

Managing Agent


I have found them to be highly professional in all our dealings, but most of all knowledgeable of the minutiae of service charges and block management.



I am very happy with the way Brady Solicitors helped me to extend my lease. They made the process easy, clarifying the various stages, giving me advice on my options and handling them professionally.


We take great pride in the recognition we have received, which showcases our innovative approaches and capabilities within the industry.
