What do the service charges cover, shared areas presumably but are there any services specific to the particular properties? In other words, is there any justification for apportioning on the basis of the size of each property rather than an equal split between them?
In that case there is an argument that the properties should share on an equal basis. The basis of apportionment by floor space would be appropriate if the proprietors of the larger properties were getting more benefit from the services but if that is not the case then there is no reason why the charges shouldn’t be split equally. However it is for the residents to decide in accordance with their title deeds. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that JustAnswer credits me for my time.
