I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in Canford Heath yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Canford Heath and has limited impact for conveyancing in Canford Heath 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

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

How does conveyancing in Canford Heath differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Canford Heath approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Canford Heath tend to buy the site, 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Canford Heath or who has acted in the same development.
