I own a freehold premises in Claverdon but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Claverdon and has limited impact for conveyancing in Claverdon 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 establishment 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 after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
We are planning to move house in January. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Claverdon. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from the estate agent but this can only happen once the vendors solicitors inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. After that you will need to inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Claverdon or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Claverdon.

We previously instructed conveyancers located in Claverdon on the Virgin Money solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further sum for dealing with the Virgin Money mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Virgin Money?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Virgin Money but by your Claverdon solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Virgin Money panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
