I have just started marketing my basement apartment in Upper Clapton. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

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.
