hi guys, would you say a reasonable increase this new year from april on the service is £200 extra on top of last years?

it has gone from £998 to nearly £1200! in one year...

Has your banding changed?

Most council tax has been frozen as far as i am aware

Check on this years and last years what band you are in

Read the letter properly, it should tell you the % increase but as Marty1981 states most councils have frozen the Council Tax.
#3
this is the service charge not tax, sadly.. just seems a bit jump in one year

should of made it clearer in the wording

To the council? Or do you mean just the standard 'service charge'?

OK, so you lease the flay off the council. Sorry, I was getting confused with private lettings.

I rent an apartment out to a couple of tenants (privately) and the service charge (general upkeep, buildings insurance etc) costs £1160 a year so £1200 sounds about right.

Depends what area of course.
