I am about to exchange on the purchase of a property in Hungerford but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor of three thousand pounds in the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but TSB will not permit this. Should they have been informed?

Your conveyancer that is on a TSB conveyancing panel is required to disclose to TSB of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to report the price change to TSB then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, TSB and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Hungerford.

Completion is due on the disposal of our £400,000 flat in Hungerford in just under a week. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Hungerford?

Hungerford conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally requires the buyer’s conveyancer sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to these enquiries the majority will be content to assist. They may invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it is in excess of £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, without which the charge is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that one has little choice but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to sell the property.

I’m about to sell my garden flat in Hungerford.Conveyancing has not commenced but I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be apportionedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
