I'd really appreciate some advice on this... Six months ago I sold my leasehold property. Shortly after completion I was told that there was a shortfall in the service charge payments that I'd made (because the payments are only estimates until the management company do their year-end accounts). I paid the shortfall and was told by the management company that that was an end to it. Fast-forward six months: earlier this week I received a request from my solicitor for an additional service charge payment. Apparently my buyer had to cough up more than expected because the solicitors on both sides misunderstood how and when the charges are worked out. It's my understanding that solicitors on both sides of a sale should retain a sum of money for just such an eventuality. Evidently they didn't do this or they didn't retain enough and now they're coming after me. The buyer has cleared the account (presumably they were getting grief from the management company) so the only money allegedly owed is to my buyer. It's also my understanding that once you've completed on a property, that's it: your financial obligations to that property end with the completion statement (isn't that the point of it?!). Putting aside the moral issue of whether I *should* pay, do I have any legal obligation to pay this? So far my (former) solicitor is asking nicely but I suspect their tone will harden if I push back. Sorry for the essay.
