My freehold owner sent me not an invoice for interim service charhes for year June 2012 to may 2013 of £ 1361.45 including administrative service charges of £ 27.15. Those interim service charges do not refer to charges that were already occured and paid for but to the estimated service charges. They sent me details of the estimated accounts and I am still in possession of that letter.
Seeing that the charges weren't for occured expenses, I sent the agents of freeholder 6 charques payable in 6 months from August 2012 to January 2013.
In return, I received a letter from them today that they could agree to accept post dated cheques provided I sign an agreement with them to pay £ 36 as extra charges. I think the freeholders do not have a right to claim such payment because I am still paying the whole amount of money not in 12 months but in 6 months.
If I dont agree to sign that agreement as they wanted and they return my cheques, then they sue me for non payment of service charges, would the courts be likely to decide against my action and sentence me to make that payment and additional charges and their legal charges or they just strike off the claim.
Your urgent reply will be greatly appreciated.
