Tenant Not Obliged to Pay Service Charge

It was held that a tenant was not obliged to pay a service charge for heating, once a separate boiler had been installed.

In the recent case of Saunderson v Cambridge Park Court Residents Association Limited Re: Cambridge Park Court [2018], the tenant (“T”) had a long lease in a block of flats, which had a communal heating system.

T had held the Lease since 1994 and had paid towards heating costs from that time.

The communal heating system was problematic and stopped altogether in 2008, when T’s flat ceased to have heating.
