Sorry, was on other computer. The Service Charge is £195.00 inclusive of VAT.
There was another issue, a lawyer rents the office below me. He constantly smokes in the office, so much so that the smoke comes up the lift-shaft into my office. I am asthmatic and allergic to cigarette smoke, mould etc. Despite frequent requests the lawyer wouldn't stop smoking and eventually I stopped going to the office for full weeks. It took two years for the agents to do something about it. The lawyer is still there but promises not to smoke any more. The two years have been very difficult; I have had an operation on my gums recently not solely because of the exposure to smoke but it almost certainly exacerbated the situation.
It's illegal to smoke in office space as you probably know and the fact that the gentleman is a lawyer and broke the law is priceless.
The fact is I would like to have some recompense for the way I've been treated by the agents and the lawyer. Is there a point in counterclaiming?
Many thanks, excellent service.
