I own a freehold residence in Caergwrle but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Caergwrle and has limited impact for conveyancing in Caergwrle 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 creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.
I am planning to acquire a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Caergwrle who is on the Santander solicitor. Can you recommend a local solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Santander in certain locations such as Caergwrle. We dont recommend any particular firm.
We previously chose solicitors locally in Caergwrle on the TSB solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional charge for the legal aspects of the TSB mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by TSB?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by TSB but by your Caergwrle solicitor. Some firms on the TSB panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
Can I be sure that the Caergwrle conveyancing solicitor on the Kent Reliance panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Caergwrle getting recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor handling your transaction.
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Caergwrle accepted, the owners do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The sellers have offered on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Caergwrle. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Caergwrle conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to check that your lawyer is on the Virgin Money approved list. Concerning the next steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to proceed with searches.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Caergwrle. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Caergwrle
The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Caergwrle I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Caergwrle for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
