It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Inkberrow. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be with the lender or they could be archived with the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Inkberrow relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Inkberrow. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in September. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in September. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. many banks would take a practical view as this obligation is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor flat in Inkberrow. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just received a yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as usual as all rents and service invoices should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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.
