I have been advised by numerous estate agents in Malpas to choose a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your services rather than another?
We don’t make any financial incentive for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I have just started marketing my basement flat in Malpas. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just received a half-yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as you normally would given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices 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 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.
