Software maintenance involves the manipulation of legacy code. There is a study about effort that shows as a result that the division is not equal between creation and maintenance.

In the study that mention a value of more than 50% of the effort due to software maintenance there is also a great discussion on software evolution towards its maintenance and the necessary tasks for both. Surely is worth taking a look at this reference before making that decision about starting to develop the solution from scratch or working with an existing code base.
