Issuing accurate and timely service charge demands is essential in securing and maintaining sufficient block management funds.
An incorrect service charge demand is one of the most common reasons given by leaseholders for non-payment of their service charge contribution. To avoid falling foul of the ‘incorrect service charge demand’ excuse, you should:
1. Issue the demand in accordance with the lease
2. Put it in writing, with the landlord’s address in England and Wales – download your free demand template using the form on the right hand side of this page.
3. Include the Summary of Rights and Obligations
4. Serve the demand within the 18 month time limit
When should I issue the service charge demand?
We recommend that you issue the service charge demand 21 days before payment is due.
A reminder should then be sent to any slow payers 14 to 21 days after the payment due date. This should set out any penalties that may be incurred for further delays in payment.
