Rent and service charges
The council welcomes proposals from interested parties and would be open to considering commercial or community uses. Each office will have a service charge based on a fair proportion of the annual costs of decorating, repairing and maintaining common areas, car parking and landscaping. The council will retain responsibility for the structure of the premises and any external repair and decoration. The annual costs of this would be recovered through the service charge.
Leases of up to 5 years are available. As indicated above, any new lease would be on an internal repairing basis with a service charge to cover the repairs and maintenance of the structure and external areas.

The utilities supplied to the premises will be charged to the tenants on a fair proportion through the service charge.
