Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden apartment in Clifton. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and service charges should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
