I am the registered owner of a freehold premises in Chadderton yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Chadderton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Chadderton 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 fresh rentcharges post 1977.
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.
Do I need to have a meeting at the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Chadderton so that I can pop in to their offices when needed.
As opposed to 15 years ago, almost all lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel lawyer to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to hand over ID documents and there are still distinct benefits to choosing a local ayer, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Chadderton.
I am selling our property in Chadderton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Chadderton lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Chadderton. We have lived in Chadderton for six years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
How does conveyancing in Chadderton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Chadderton contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Chadderton usually acquire 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 used to new build conveyancing in Chadderton or who has acted in the same development.
