How to pay my service charges
You may pay your service charges in any of the following ways:
By Standing Order/Direct Debit
Please contact Leasehold Management Team on telephone number 020 8937 2601 to request the mandate you require.
Once we have updated our records, the mandate will then be sent to your bank.
Please do not send directly to your bank, as this may result in your account not being debited.
You can pay by post by sending a cheque to Leasehold Services:
Leasehold Management Team (Payments)
Brent Housing Partnership
Brent Civic Centre
Engineers Way, Wembley
Please ensure that you write your name, address and account number (see your invoice) on the back of your cheque.
Paid cheques are considered to be sufficient evidence of payment and receipts will only be issued if specifically requested and the cheque is accompanied by a copy of the invoice and a stamped self-addressed envelope.
Cheques for service charges must be made payable to London Borough of Brent otherwise the cheque will be returned to you.
By credit card
You can pay by Switch or Delta Debit Card or Credit Card by telephoning our automated Credit Card Hotline on 020 8937 1717.
When prompted, press 5 on your telephone keypad to pay service charges.
Please ensure that you have your leasehold service charge account number (this is the four digit number after FD48, as shown on the top of your invoice) and card details to hand. You will be given an official four digit receipt number at the end of the call.
