I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor apartment in Gunnersbury. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently received a yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as normal given that all rents and maintenance invoices should be apportioned on completion, 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.
