About service charges

Major works service charges

As well as your yearly service charge bill, you may also receive an invoice for major works charges.

A major works charge is for large one-off works carried out to a building or estate, such as:

  • renewing the roof or windows
  • brickwork repairs
  • resurfacing the estate roads

Where major works costs are over £250 per homeowner, we have to consult with you in a specific way before the works are carried out.

We’ll try to combine works where possible. For instance, if your block is due for external redecoration, and the roof needs replacing, we’ll try to do both in the same programme.
