I am expecting a mortgage with Nat West. I would like to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Chulmleigh. Does the Nat West Solicitor panel include Licensed Conveyancers?

I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in Chulmleigh yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Chulmleigh and has limited impact for conveyancing in Chulmleigh 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 establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed 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 inherited a garden flat in Chulmleigh, conveyancing formalities finalised 9 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Chulmleigh with a long lease are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2091

You have 69 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

Midway through the sale of a leasehold flat in Chulmleigh. Conveyancing lawyers are doing their job but we have been asked to pay an extortionate amount from the managing agents. So far we have paid £237 for a leasehold management information and then another £200 plus VAT for supplemental questions raised by the buyers property lawyer.

You will not have control over the extent of the charges for this information however the average costs for the information for Chulmleigh leasehold property is £360. For Chulmleigh conveyancing sales it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The freeholder or their agents are under no statutory obligation to answer such questions most will be content to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices out of proportion to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no legislation that mandates fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any prescriptive time frame by which they are obliged to supply the information.
