Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Pontyclun I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease.

I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Pontyclun. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as you normally would because all ground rent and service payments will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage 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.
