How can I negotiate a service charge extension?

To negotiate a service charge extension, start by reviewing your current lease agreement to understand any existing terms regarding service charges. Gathering evidence of service costs and comparing them with market standards is beneficial. Negotiations should focus on fairness and transparency in how service charges are derived and applied.

What should I consider before agreeing to a service charge extension?

Before agreeing to a service charge extension, consider how the new terms will impact your financial obligations over the term of your lease. Assess whether the service charge cap is reasonable and in line with market conditions. Ensure any changes are clearly documented and understood.

Can I dispute a service charge if I believe it is unfair?

Yes, you can dispute a service charge if you believe it has been unfairly applied or calculated. It’s important to present clear documentation and reasoning why the charge is considered unfair and propose a fair charge. Legal advice might be necessary to resolve such disputes effectively.
