I’m about to sell my 2 bed flat in Frenchay Common. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the service charge as usual as all ground rent and service charges should be allotted 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 managing agents 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.

I am in the process of purchasing my 1st home in Frenchay Common. Conveyancing practitioner has been selected. The financial consultant advised that a survey is not needed as the property was only built twenty two years ago.

You would be best advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. As the property is more than 10 years old the property will not come with a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may be enough. The report should highlight any apparent issues and recommend further investigation if relevant. If there are any signs of material issues seek a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
