Special charges are mentioned on a Lloyd’s Average Bond form. What are they?

Charges, sometimes called Particular Charges, which are incurred during a voyage (usually by the carrier) solely for the benefit of an individual owner of a consignment of goods as opposed to all the parties to the common adventure. General average therefore cannot apply, and the carrier must recover the costs from the receiver of that consignment. The carrier has a possessory lien for Special Charges whilst he remains in possession of the goods.
