I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed apartment in Chalfont St Giles. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
