I’m about to sell my basement flat in St Luke's. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all ground rent and service payments will 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 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
