My offer on a house in Pontprennau has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline.

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Pontprennau conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of purchasers will apply for a home loan with HSBC and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Pontprennau.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Pontprennau. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
