I own a freehold residence in Manningtree but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Manningtree and has limited impact for conveyancing in Manningtree 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 establishment of new rentcharges post 1977.

we are a couple who intend to purchase a newly converted apartment in Manningtree with a residential mortgage from Halifax.We like our Manningtree conveyancing practitioner but Halifax says he's not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Halifax panel lawyer or keep our local solicitor and pay for a Halifax panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the Halifax approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Halifax
