Any updates?  I’m finding all I can afford is places that are old with high service charges.

What do you consider high service charges? Please quantify in terms of ground rent, sinking fund, service charge, sqft (to calculate service charge per square foot), level of service (i.e. hot water, sewerage).

Lol you realise I’m dealing with estate agents right?  Not sure they will have this kind of info to hand without applying to the management company.  The last I viewed was a two bed and the service charge was £6000 per annum.  Ideally, I don’t want to pay more than 1k.

You have to really push for correct figures. It's impossible to determine the true cost of a flat from a simple Rightmove advertisement. It's a bit of a joke really. This information should be mandatory. The thing that annoys me most are advertisements 'Leasehold' and it doesn't say how long is remaining. Could be 1 week. Total waste of everyone's time.
