I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Countesthorpe. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
It best that you discharge the service charge as you normally would because all rents and maintenance invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless 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.
