Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chesham

I purchased a freehold house in Chesham but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Chesham and has limited impact for conveyancing in Chesham 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 generation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

I am downsizing from our property in Chesham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Chesham conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Chesham. We have lived in Chesham for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must check with 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)
