Other charges

There may be other charges applied to your tenancy such as service charges which are payable along with your rent.

Housing support is a chargeable service. If you use this service you will receive an invoice which is paid separately from your rent. 

Service charges payable with your rent can be related to:

  • The property and are included as a condition of your tenancy
  • The tenant and are made in response to a request for a service

Service charges are applied when a specific service is provided to a group of tenants. The charge covers the cost of providing the service.

Charges relating to the property include:

  • Heating and electricity in sheltered housing
  • Sheltered housing management costs
  • Provision of cookers in sheltered housing
  • Provision of furnishings
  • Communal cleaning

Some property service charges may be eligible for housing benefit. Contact your local Housing office to find out if a service charge is eligible.
