I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Brough but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Brough and has limited impact for conveyancing in Brough 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be extinguished.

How does conveyancing in Brough differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Brough contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Brough usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Brough or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Brough I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Brough suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
