I am the registered owner of a freehold property in Eaglescliffe but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Eaglescliffe and has limited impact for conveyancing in Eaglescliffe 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 creation of new 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 post 2037 will be extinguished.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Eaglescliffe and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Eaglescliffe lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Eaglescliffe. Having lived in Eaglescliffe for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I only have 72 years unexpired on my flat in Eaglescliffe. I now wish to extend my lease but my landlord is absent. What options are available to me?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have done all that could be expected to find the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent would be useful to try and locate and to produce a report which can be accepted by the court as proof that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Eaglescliffe.
