Paying other charges

Other charges include service charges, ground rents and Shared Ownership rent. You can pay these charges by phone, online, Direct Debit, standing order or bank transfer.

Other charges

If you are a tenant, service charges, and water and sewerage are part of your rent. There is a list of charges in your tenancy agreement. They include maintaining communal areas, equipment and facilities like:

  • bin chutes
  • CCTV

If you are a leaseholder, your lease sets out what your service charge pays for, your ground rent, and how you can pay it.
