I've recently bought a leasehold house in Bradford. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee 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).

    The majority of Bradford leasehold properties will be liable to pay a service charge for maintenance of the block invoiced on behalf of the landlord. Should you buy the property you will have to meet this charge, usually in instalments during the year. This could vary from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large communal grounds. There will also be a ground rent to be met annual, normally this is not a large amount, say approximately £50-£100 but you need to enquire as sometimes it could be surprisingly expensive. Best to be warned whether fixing the lift or some other significant cost is coming up to be shared by the leaseholders and could well materially impact the level of the maintenance charges or require a specific invoice. The best form of lease structure is a share of the freehold. In this arrangement the lessees benefit from being in charge if their destiny and notwithstanding that a managing agent is often retained where the building is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent retained by the leaseholders.
