I opted for a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in Edgwarebury yesterday. After carefully reading the Terms I notewe are liable for costs even if the dealfalls through. Should I go with them or choose an internet firm offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Edgwarebury?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to counteract those conveyances that fail to complete. You should be mindful that these deals rarely protect you from outlay for example Edgwarebury conveyancing search costs.
I purchased a freehold property in Edgwarebury but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Edgwarebury and has limited impact for conveyancing in Edgwarebury 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 new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

How does conveyancing in Edgwarebury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Edgwarebury contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Edgwarebury usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Edgwarebury or who has acted in the same development.
I am intending to rent out my leasehold flat in Edgwarebury. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
A small minority of properties in Edgwarebury do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
Having spent months of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Edgwarebury. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Edgwarebury conveyancing firm who can help.
