Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement flat in New Forest. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as you normally would as all rents and service invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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.
