I own a freehold residence in Jesmond yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Jesmond and has limited impact for conveyancing in Jesmond 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh 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 after 2037 will be extinguished.
How straightforward is it to use the search app to select a conveyancing practitioner in Jesmond on the panel for my bank?
Step one is to choose a lender such as Lloyds TSB Bank, Bank of Scotland or Aldermore then choose your preferred area e.g. Jesmond. Conveyancing practices in Jesmond and beyond should be listed.
We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent told us that the owners will only issue a contract if we instruct their recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Jesmond
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your preferred Jesmond conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets set by corporate headquarters.
