It has taken forever and a day but a loan agreement from NatWest for the remortgage of my 3 room maisonette is due by the end of next week. Could you propose a cheap conveyancing solicitor in Calcot?

I purchased a freehold property in Calcot but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Calcot and has limited impact for conveyancing in Calcot 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 date back many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges post 1977.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

I used Action Conveyancing several years ago for my conveyancing in Calcot. Now, I need the files but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

Do contact the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to help locate your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Calcot prior to retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks may not give a loan on such a home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different instructions from Halifax. If you call us we can investigate further via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Calcot. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Calcot to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we use their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Calcot

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to instruct your preferred Calcot conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.
