I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor flat in Harmondsworth.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon however I have recently had a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
It best that you clear the invoice as normal because all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportionedon completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents 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
