You may be liable to pay a service charge. The charge is based on the actual cost of delivering services which are particular to housing scheme in which you live. The service charge for each scheme is, therefore, calculated individually and based on expenditure for the past year plus/minus any deficit or surplus on the service account plus inflation.
At the time of signing up for a property with Habinteg, your Housing Officer will complete a Schedule of Service Charge items, detailing the services and the weekly cost for each service. These costs are reviewed annually and may increase or decrease.
