Mr Hogan, who has an apartment in Villamoura on the Algarve, has an outstanding service charge of €4,320, according to a ‘debtors’ list document dated March 27. Yesterday, the minister confirmed that fees “of that order” were outstanding but said that he was in dispute with the apartment complex’s management company. “Would you pay a charge if you were unhappy with the service?” he asked.
