Me and my brother have a renovated Georgian house in Brandesburton. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Bank of Ireland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address.

I have just appointed agents to market my basement apartment in Brandesburton. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently received a quarterly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as normal because all rents and maintenance payments will be apportioned 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 next payment date. Most management companies 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
