There is not much else in Whitefield in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

I have just started marketing my garden apartment in Whitefield. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as usual because all rents and maintenance invoices will be allotted 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 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.
