Dear RLA.

I got into arrears on service charges due to a number of circumstances happening together (lack of work, large & small item repairs, evicting a non paying tenant + subsequent repairs,2 tenants giving notice). I have been running an RTM which was rebuffed by om management at the first attempt. The company do not enter into correspondence - well they do - pay up or we'll add charges then pass it onto a debt collecting company then a solicitor if you don't pay! The money owed gets passed over to a property debt collecting company(who add charges)after 30 days.
Is there anything I can do to contend these aggressive & threatening actions and not pay extremely high charges on top of the service charges (which are extremely high in any case)?
