Ground Rent & Service Charge Recovery


27 June, 2014

Forbes has recently been instructed by housing clients, and commercial landlords, to collect historic arrears of ground rents and service charges. By taking bulk instructions these are handled in a cost effective way.

In one recent case -

  • Forbes were instructed to recover unpaid service charges and ground rents from 21 debtors with total debt of £29,500
  • To date £19,000 from 16 debtors has been recovered without the need to issue any court proceedings
  • A fixed fee service covering the entire process, from sending letters of demand to appearing at Court on forfeiture proceedings has been agreed
  • The costs incurred can (depending on the exact wording of the service charge clause in the lease) be added to the service charge account
