I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would much rather appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Shenley Brook End?

Call the bank and explore if they make available a cash alternative.

Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

I’m about to sell my garden flat in Shenley Brook End. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as usual given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be allotted on completion, 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 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
