Management agents First Port have responded to residents' concerns LINK over increases in service charges with a Q&A seeking to explain how they arrived at the increases at Quadrant Court.
They quote an increase of 7% but also recognise that this does not include several major items of additional expenditure. They do not discuss what one what resident described as the 'rocketing' charges they pay for the maintenance of the Wembley Park estate, now costing their residents at least £100,000 a year.
The 'all-in' Tipi style private rental build by Quintain, supported by Brent Council, leaves room for increases in broadband, utility, maintenance and concierge charges, over and above the basic rent, with residents tied service charges based on whatever deals the management agents arrange.
