Apportionment of service charges in mixed-use developments (ARCHIVED)

This document has been archived and is available on isurv for information purposes only.

This information paper was written to address new developments where the service charge apportionment strategy can be constructed simultaneously with the lease documentation. The principles it sets out can be used when considering revising the Apportionment of existing developments where the existing leases do not allow for apportionment to be amended. But consequent complications must be taken into account.

Whatever the circumstances the resultant apportionment strategy must be clearly and transparently set out. It must enable all parties to understand the basis of apportionment and allow for future modifications in the event that circumstances change making a revised apportionment strategy necessary.
