The Estate rentcharge is a fixed fee that each homeowner pays towards the upkeep of the open spaces and associated features. Your first payment will be taken on legal completion, and thereafter annual invoice will be issued to you at the start of the following billing year (usually in March) and follows the schedule attached to your Plot Transfer Document TP1.
This charge is payable by all households and has been carefully calculated to maximise value for money and reflect the costs of the maintenance programme.
The Estate rentcharge can be paid by bank transfer, Direct Debit, over the phone, or by cheque, and we will contact you regarding the collection of this amount.
The Estate rentcharge ensures that the open spaces where you live are properly maintained and managed for the future, to optimise the enjoyment and use for all as the landscaping matures.
We will commence services on instruction by the developers, which will usually be prior to completion and occupation of all new homes on the development.
Payments can also be made by cash, cheque, BACS, or, our preferred option of, Direct Debit.
