I’m about to sell my garden flat in Dereham. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as usual because all rents and maintenance charges should be allotted 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 next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until 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.

You should be realistic about timelines. Moving home in Dereham takes on average about two months. This time period is not due to property lawyer being slow and deliberately delay matters. The level of money involved in purchasing any residence is so high, the purchaser's property lawyer needing to carry out a wide range of queries, searches and other checks to protect the purchaser and their mortgage company (if there is to be a mortgage) from expensive, avoidable problems. These investigations involves seeking information from an array of third parties, including other conveyancing practitioner, local councils, private companies, mortgage companies. Many of these are efficient. Others aren't. Finally, it doesn't matter how quickly your conveyancing practitioner do their part, if the people you are buying from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can move forward until they are up to speed.
