Quite often there is a prerequisite that you are obliged to obtain permission via your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting.

  • Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Wembley Park.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated but I have just had a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?

    The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as normal because all ground rent and service charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed 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 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
