Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would given that all rents and maintenance invoices will 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 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.
