I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Primrose Hill. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just received a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be allotted 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a property in Primrose Hill which will be sold. The house has never been registered at HMLR and I'm told that some buyers solicitors will insist that it is completed before they will move forward. What's the mechanism for this?
In the situation that you have set out it seems sensible to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
