Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Ormskirk. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would as all rents and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage 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 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.
