Our Housing Association proposes to increase our service charge

Customer Question

Our Housing Association proposes to increase our service charge over 13% this February. This might be acceptable if they carried out their responsibilities as they should. However, Raglan (now Stonewater) have consistently broken their contract to us - this is what the lease agreement says. . .
(FIFTH SCHEDULE)
3. to keep the roof foundations party walls and external parts including external walls and load bearing walls and external doors and windows save the glass in any such doors and windows and the interior surface of the walls ) of the Property and of the Development in good substantial repair and to paint or otherwise treat (as may appropriate) as often as may be necessary in a proper and workmanlike manner and with suitable materials of good quality . . . SOME FLATS HAVE HAD LEAKS THROUGH THE ROOF YEARS - just fixed after reporting to the Council.
8. to keep clean and maintain and when necessary replace carpets floor covering curtains blinds furniture and any other soft furnishing or any washing machines and driers or other things whatsoever use in the Community Centre Guest Rooms Laundry Room or other Common parts. CARPET IS 26 YEARS OLD AND FILTHY.
FURNITURE IS ALSO OLD AND IS NOT FIRE RETARDENT. At our own expense we have replaced 8 chairs, bought curtains and furniture in Residents' lounge and guest room.
Is there anything we can do about this injustice?
