the setting of homeowner service charges

Lithos Road, Camden

CDS aims to set all of its service charges in accordance with the relevant legislation, housing guidance and best practice within the industry and act reasonably and fairly in calculating the charges.

Service charges will represent the cost of providing services to a particular area (such as a block or estate), plus the buildings insurance premium, the Society's administration charge and any relevant taxes, apportioned as described in the lease(s) and/or transfer deeds.Where no proportion is set in the lease CDS will seek to apportion the costs reasonably and fairly.
