How much does it cost to live in Birmingham Mailbox Apartments?

The world is talking about the housing market in Birmingham. The property market in Westside is booming at the moment, with prices on the rise as Londoners flee the capital looking for better value for money.

According to the Birmingham Post, people living in the Mailbox complex in the city centre claim service fees have more than tripled in the past six years and now cost an average of £8,000 a year.

Residents claim the fees, which are usually calculated per square foot, are leading to repossessions in the former Royal Mail sorting office – once a sought after location for young professionals in the city and a symbol of Birmingham’s growing stature as a retail and business destination.

One resident said she was paying £653.27 a quarter in 2002 and January 2003 but by October 2003 the bill went up to £1,015.48. By October 2008 it had gone up to £2,038.40, citing the same publication.
