I have just started marketing my garden apartment in New Forest. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as normal given that all rents and service payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed 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 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
