Should I go with them or use a web based conveyancing brokerage promoting no move no charge conveyancing in Frant?

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Frant. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all rents and service payments should be allotted on completion, 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 management companies 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
