Monthly standing order
The SBRC offer a concessionary payment plan whereby leaseholders may pay the service charges in TEN MONTHLY instalments via bank standing order, covering the full twelve month charge. 

The first monthly payment is due on 25th June 2015 (to allow for processing time, the first payment might be later, but must reach us before 9th July 2015) followed by nine (9) subsequent payments starting on 25th July (and on the 25th of each month) ending on 25th March 2016.

The first payment may be different to subsequent payments to account for differences in the way previous installments were calculated or over-payments. Your invoice will show what to pay.
