Leases and tenancy agreements usually allow landlords to recover the costs incurred in the repair, maintenance management and provision of services to a multi-occupancy building from the leaseholders. These charges are known as service charges.
Members of Tanfield are well-known for their expertise in the law relating to service charges and the management of commercial, residential and mixed-use developments.
