What is a Service Charge in Property Management?

A service charge, as the name suggests, is the amount of money that you pay for using the common building services, as well as for their maintenance needs. 

Service charges are generally paid on a monthly basis. But the time period can vary depending on the lease agreement. The building owner has to disclose all the details regarding the service charge amount, the way it’s calculated, and where the amount will be used in the lease agreement.
