Need some help from the maths experts here

I’ve just found I’ve had £403.34 deducted for rent and service charge this month. I was told my total weekly charge for them was £86.69 . I can’t get the figures to fit/make sense.

Well if it’s £86.69 per week

86.69 x 52 = £4507.88 (total year cost)

4507.88 / 12 = £375.66 monthly cost

But does your figure of £403.34 maybe include council tax?

Last time I looked at the council tax letter I was down as having to pay £0. I’ve not heard anything to the contrary. I’ve emailed the housing association.

I am sure there will be a small administrative error somewhere. Nothing to worry about

You might well be right,but such things tend to make me anxious.

Yeah I get anxious about this sort of stuff too. Believe me though - the housing places make small mistakes all the time

It got so bad with all the benefit changes and assessments that at my last address I was seriously entertaining the thought that some mental health staff were really government agents

Five week months would be 433.45 but your total was slightly less than that. Possibly because it was only four and a half weeks.
