We're in Umberleigh, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Principality , and our solicitor is on the Principality conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

I have just started marketing my ground floor apartment in Umberleigh. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?

It best that you clear the service charge as usual because all ground rent and maintenance charges will be allotted 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 management companies 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
