The service charge will be £1.50 per £100 of goods. For example – goods of £600 = service charge of £9.00 per week; goods of £900 = service charge of £13.50 per week. For those on benefits, the service charge is eligible for Housing Benefit.
A service charge will be applied to your rent account and on acceptance into the Service you would take on the responsibility for the general care of the goods supplied.
Essentially, you will be renting these goods and they will never become your own property.
The furniture should be delivered to your flat within three days of signing up for your tenancy. Carpets may take longer.
