Yes. We need to know if you are self-managing or using a letting agent. We also need to know your tenant's name, move-in date and a contact telephone number in case of emergencies such as maintenance problems We will also need to be notified when the tenant of your flat changes and must have your current postal address to send any correspondence to.
Check on the Northampton Borough Council website to double check your collection day. The council will not collect split rubbish bags or if the bins are overflowing. If this has still not solved the problem, please contact the County Council.

What is the difference if I own the freehold to my property? Why do I still pay service charges?show
Your Service Charge bill is split into two sections. The first part is an anticipated yearly budget based on last year’s expenditure for your particular site. The second part, however, is a collection of money for future large scale works such as interior and exterior redecorations, landscaping issues, security issues and/or roof repairs, as sometimes money has to be collected and accumulated before certain works can be carried out.
Ground Rent is the payment made by leaseholders to the freeholder of the site. It is paid annually in advance and OBMS Ltd. will contact you 28 days before it is due. Service Charge is money collected for the upkeep and maintenance of the site and is formally demanded once a year. We collect money for routine works such as gardening and cleaning but we also collect for larger works as stipulated in your lease. It is less of a financial burden to collect small amounts over a longer period of time than to ask for a large one off payment when works need to be carried out.
