My wife and I are due to exchange buying a property in Earls Barton but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the vendor of six thousand pounds by way of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract yet Principality are not allowing this. Why were they involved?
Any conveyancing practitioner being on a Principality conveyancing panel is required to inform Principality of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to disclose the reduction to Principality then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Principality and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Earls Barton.
I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Earls Barton but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Earls Barton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Earls Barton 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 many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be extinguished.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Earls Barton is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Earls Barton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Earls Barton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Earls Barton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
Given that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a terraced house in Earls Barton I wish to talk to a conveyancer concerning thehouse move prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer due to be carrying out your conveyancing in Earls Barton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a file number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Earls Barton should be the figure that you are charged.
