Concerning the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of buyers will apply for a home loan with RBS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing in Ashbourne.

I have just started marketing my garden flat in Ashbourne.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon however I have just received a half-yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and service charges should be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
