I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Totton. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have recently received a yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you clear the invoice as you normally would given that all rents and service invoices should be apportioned on completion, 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 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.
