I’m about to sell my basement flat in Saltney. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently received a half-yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer 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.
