We are holding our seminars on ‘All You Want to Know about Service Charges in Social Housing’ between February and September. These seminars are designed to give an introduction and overview to this important subject and are fully up to date with all developments.
Service charges are an integral part of landlords’ work in financing value for money services and sustaining customer satisfaction. They have always been relatively complex but with increased financial challenges and legal and financial complexity there is an increased need to understand how service charging works.
Housing Associations have traditionally levied service charges with most local authorities in England introducing them in the ‘noughties’. In Wales, local authorities have introduced service charges as part of the Welsh government’s new rent policy. The rolling out of Universal Credit is having an impact on benefit entitlement for service charges.
These seminars are suitable for people who are not experts in service charges, but who need to understand the basics and achieve an overview of what is going on. It is suitable for councillors, board members, housing managers, legal staff, finance staff, tenant representatives, members of the service charges team with limited experience and others who realise that an understanding of service charges can place them at an advantage!
