What is service charge management?

Service charge management refers to the process of overseeing and controlling the property management fees charged by a service provider for the services they offer. It involves setting, calculating, collecting, and distributing service charges in a fair and transparent manner.


A Service Charge covers the upkeep and ongoing maintenance of a block or building and its communal areas. These costs are the responsibility of every leaseholder, and how they are split between the residents is detailed in every lease.


Effective service charge management ensures that service charges are reasonable, accurate, and reflective of the costs incurred by the service provider. Service charge management from Prinsegate also involves ensuring that the charges are communicated effectively to customers and that any disputes or concerns regarding the charges are resolved in a timely and satisfactory manner.
