Rent And Service Charge - South Lakes Housing

Rent And Service Charge

Before you moved into your home, you will have signed a tenancy agreement that sets out your weekly rent. We send you a rent account statement every three months and will notify you annually of changes to your weekly rent. Service charges cover the cost of cleaning communal areas and maintaining things such as lights, entry phones and lifts.

Your tenancy agreement tells you if you have to pay a service charge.
