Leaseholders of Clarion living on an estate in west London are withholding payment of service charge increases after they were sent bills raising costs by up to 382%.
The group is being supported by SHAC to take action, and their list of grievances include a sudden and unreasonable increase in service charges, lack of transparency and clarity of the charges. They also complain of lack of due consideration for the “enormous financial impact on residents” of Covid-19, and a breach of procedure and obligation of care by their landlord.
Leaseholders are demanding that Clarion issue new service charge bills without the increases, and arrange a meeting between leaseholders, SHAC and a “senior Clarion representative to agree long-term solutions and next steps”.
Please call out Clarion and demand a wholesale review of service charges by emailing Chief Executive Clare Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Chair of the Board David Avery (email@example.com).
