Due to the works listed above the current service charge is around £320 a month. This includes the contribution to the roof replacement due in 2019/2020. Payments into the sinking fund for the works are up to date and cover approximately half the required contribution at the present time.Payments can be reduced down and over a longer period of time, but this has to be discussed with the management company regarding payment plans.
