Service charges can form a significant part of an occupier’s outgoings. A forensic audit of the service charges you are contributing towards can result in savings and lead to a reduction in costs. Our specialist team have a wealth of experience providing service charge reviews and understand the intricacies and complexities of this work. We are able to investigate your service charge outgoings to ensure:
• Your landlord is complying with the terms of your lease • The costs represent value for money • Best practice is being observed • Any major works you are contributing to are reasonable and valid • Demands are being raised correctly
