A resident of the Hallfield Estate in Bayswater got the shock of his life when he received a bill from City West Homes’ solicitors demanding £48,496.13p as his contribution to the cost of a replacement lift for Brecon House.
Labour Councillors took this up and were told by City West Homes;
“Our solicitors sent out a letter to Mr A which contained a typo in relation to the bill for the works. The letter advised that the cost would be £48,496.73, when it should have said £8,496.73p. They recognised the error and corrected it”
