I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Saffron Walden.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon however I have recently received a yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as usual because all rents and maintenance payments should be allottedas 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 next payment date. Most managing agents 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
