Hi, I've been reading up on Cardiff Bay flats, though I'm currently renting in Roath. I saw this article on the CPS website about service charges being raised - http://www.cpshomes.co.uk/blog-post.aspx?bp=199. The blog seems to be directed at property owners rather than tenants, but I'd imagine costs get passed on. What are people's experiences with this - have you had unfair fee rises? Do I need to watch out for this? Thanks!

I presume it will be passed on unless there are loads of empty flats (which i thought there were)
hopefully people will refuse to pay them or go elsewhere

Roath is bettr than the bay tho anyways! at least 4 Cardiff urbs here already :cool:

e2a - my heart bleeds for the speculative buy to let landlords, obviously!

There are some outrageous service charges being levied on leasehold flats down the docks and in Westgate St - I know some folks paying £3k + a year.

If you rent off a landlord down the docks /bay, I'd try negotiating on the rent before I moved in as there's so many empty flats down there they'll be happy to have a tennant


The same rules apply
