We were about to choose a conveyancing solicitor in Duxford found using your comparison tool but stumbled across alternative fee calculations via the web appear less pricey – why is this?
There are plenty of solicitors marketing at first sight what seems to be cut price. Our advice is to think twice about how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to be penny wise pound foolish in relation to the quality of the conveyancing. Some embed additional charges well inside the terms of business. The law firms that we list for conveyancing in Duxford will notbehave this way.
My husband and I are approaching an exchange on a flat in Duxford and my mum and dad have transferred the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has not arrived from me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
Your lawyer is legally required to check with mortgage company to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only notify this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
I own a freehold house in Duxford but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Duxford and has limited impact for conveyancing in Duxford 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 creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.
