I purchased a freehold premises in Caersws but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Caersws and has limited impact for conveyancing in Caersws 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.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
I am due to move home in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Caersws. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across your page.
On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from the estate agent but this should only happen when the sellers conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. After that you can inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Caersws or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Caersws.
We previously chose conveyancing lawyers with offices in Caersws on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional amount for handling the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Caersws solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Coventry BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.
How can we tell if a Caersws conveyancing solicitor on the Kent Reliance panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Caersws seeking recommendations is a good starting point. 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 which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.
I moved into my house on 8 February and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Caersws said it will be formalised inside ten days. Are transfers in Caersws particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Caersws registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently approximately 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration takes place once the new owner is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Caersws prior to appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not give a loan on a flying freehold home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you call us we can investigate further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Caersws. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Caersws to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

There are no two ways about it it’s preferable to select a conveyancing solicitor is to seek guidance from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor that you are are thinking of instructing.
