I purchased a freehold property in Hull West yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Hull West and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hull West 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 fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
How does conveyancing in Hull West differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Hull West contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Hull West usually acquire the site, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Hull West or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Hull West I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hull West for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent told us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their preferred conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Hull West
It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to use your preferred Hull West conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by corporate headquarters.
