If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you.

The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as you normally would because all rents and maintenance payments will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
