I have just started marketing my basement flat in Basildon. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as usual as all rents and maintenance invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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.

    If a Basildon lease has no more than 80 years it will impact the value of the property. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are happy with remaining years on the lease. A short lease means that you will almost definitely have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the residence for two years in order to be eligible to extend the lease. How much is the service charge and ground rent on the apartment? For many Basildon leaseholds the outlay for major works are not included within service charges, albeit that some managing agents in Basildon require tenants to pay into a sinking fund and this is used to offset against major repairs or maintenance.
