I've recently bought a leasehold house in Tibshelf. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

There are plenty of houses in Tibshelf on private roads. My husband and I are acquiring such a property. Are there any benefits to buying a residence on a privately owned road?

Tibshelf conveyancing lawyers are used to transacting propertieson unadopted roads. Your conveyancing practitioner will review the Land Registry data to find any rights or liabilities. It is possible that there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that owners make annual contributions to maintain the road. If one exists, the road will likely be maintained and appear nicer than publicly owned.
