I am buying a garden flat in Selly Oak. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Selly Oak. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as usual as all rents and maintenance charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, 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 unless 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.
