I’m about to sell my 2 bed flat in Peacehaven. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just had a yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
It best that you pay the service charge as usual given that all rents and service charges will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date.
