How closely do you look at your service charges?

After reading the following you may wish to start having a closer look?

The following is an extract from an email to the Wandsworth Borough Council (WBC) on Friday 7th October 2016 with regards to queries regarding 2016 service charges which was queried. These are to do with electricity costs.

The following is regarding Estate costs.

“Lighting:

What is the reason for the charge to go from £2 to £10.91?”

Rather interestingly, the answer from the WBC on 9th November 2016 regarding the increase in electricity prices was;

There has been a relatively high increase in this years service charges for lighting. This is due to the costs incurred by the Council from the electricity company. You may have noticed that service charges for the most recent years previous to 2015/16 have been somewhat low. This is due to the electricity company under billing the Council. This year however, the electricity company have risen the cost to include a back payment for the years that they did not charge an increase on. You will note from your Summary of Costs that the estimate for lighting for the period of 2016/17 is lower then this years, as it is expected the Council will not be billed such a high amount”.

If you are a leaseholder were you aware of this? If not, do you think the Council should have informed you?
