I do hope you can assist me. My Duffield conveyancer is informing me me that he has toconduct Duffield conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Virgin Moneysolicitor panel. Is my lawyer right?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Duffield conveyancing searches.
I purchased a freehold residence in Duffield but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Duffield and has limited impact for conveyancing in Duffield 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
