Last February I purchased a leasehold house in Arkley. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Should one remove a deceased person's details from the title deeds for a house in Arkley?
If a Arkley property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to amend the title as when it comes to a sale your lawyer would simply be required to evidence why the co proprietor is missing from the contract, typically this is in the form of the probate documents.
With the aim of making the sale conveyancing simpler for the sale of the property you can apply to have the deceased party removed from the title register by submitting an application to HMLR with evidence of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
