Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel conveyancers should you accept the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the mortgage company to check if they offer you a monetary alternative.

I have just appointed agents to market my basement flat in South East London. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as normal given that all rents and maintenance payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents 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.

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in South East London to find Conveyancing in South East London in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the freeholder insuring the entire block - which is definitely better. Do check with your conveyancing practitioner but it would appear that your conveyancer is seeking to establish that the entire building is insured. Insuring a ground floor flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be rebuilt as a result of lack of insurance cover.
