I purchased a freehold residence in Bovey Tracey but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Bovey Tracey and has limited impact for conveyancing in Bovey Tracey but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of new rentcharges post 1977.

We are purchasing a newly converted flat in Bovey Tracey with a loan from Clydesdale.We use our Bovey Tracey conveyancing lawyer but Clydesdale informed us her practice is not on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Clydesdale panel solicitor or keep our local solicitor and fork out for a Clydesdale panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers needs to be on the Clydesdale approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Clydesdale
