ou must seek legal advice as you are in breach of your lease if you do not pay your service charges and your landlord can take legal action against you. If you have a mortgage, they can also apply to your mortgage company to have a charge put against your mortgage. So never just stop paying your service charge.
If you think that your landlord has been charging you the incorrect amount, you can file a claim with the First Tier Tribunal (previously known as the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal), but this can be very costly and time consuming.
Our advice is if you have an issue, talk to other leaseholders and see if they feel the same and then come and talk to us regarding your collective options. Right to Manage is your way of taking over responsibility of running your building.
