Being a leasehold owner I am on the hook for a maintenance fee for my flat in Willesden. Due to redundancy and other issues I slipped into arrears with remittance. I negotiated a settlement schedule but there remains three thousand pounds currently due.
I am under pressure to dispose of the property and I am worried this could threaten to derail the sale if I have to settle the amount due in advance. I'd like to sell up and then pay them back with the completion monies - is this viable?

The contractual price due would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They could then deal with the arrears following completion of the purchase.
