I have just started marketing my basement apartment in Taplow. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, 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 service charge as normal because all ground rent and maintenance payments should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies 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.
