Outgoings 
We are currently waiting for the details of the lease but we have been told previously by the Housing Association that a new lease for 60 years is granted each time a flat is sold. However, we suggest this is checked by the purchaser and his/her solicitors prior to exchange of contracts. Service Charge: We have been informed verbally by our clients that the current service charge is £1730.04 per annum. However, again, we have not seen written proof of this and suggest this is also checked by the purchaser and his/her solicitors prior to exchange of contracts.
