If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references.

You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should make sure that you hold the original share certificate. Obtaining a new share certificate can be a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Cambourne home move. Where a new share is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (where relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring?
