Commercial service charges are a common cause of disputes between landlords and commercial tenants. At Chandler Harris, we appreciate that, for landlords, service charge arrears can create substantial disruption by restricting cash flow, creating additional stress and work, and impacting upon their ability to fulfil their obligations in terms of completing work and providing services to other tenants.

We do not charge fees for our debt recovery service, no matter the outcome. That is what makes us unique.

No fees to pay. No court fees to pay. No hidden costs. No unexpected invoices. No surprises!

Our commercial service charge arrears lawyers take a commercially focused approach to help ensure that you have the necessary funds available to manage your properties effectively. Whether you collect service charges from your tenants on a quarterly or annual basis, you must act fast to prevent arrears accumulating and cash flow issues developing further down the line.

What are commercial service charges, and can they be recovered?

Unlike residential tenancies, there are no statutory provisions governing commercial service charges. Close attention must be paid to the terms of the individual lease to determine the services that a landlord should provide, how costs will be recovered and when payments should be made.

We can offer:

  • Quick and effective commercial service charge arrears recovery at no cost to you
  • A commercially focused approach to debt recovery
  • A dedicated manager for your account who will act as a consistent point of contact and will be available to answer any questions and discuss any issues promptly
  • Guidance and support on a wide range of property law matters

Our commercial service charge arrears lawyers will work tirelessly to recover money owed to you quickly and straightforwardly, while at the same time striving to maintain a good relationship between you and your tenant. Our dedication to getting results for our clients in this area has been recognised by the leading directory of recommended firms, the Legal 500, which describes our service as ‘excellent’.
