I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (five years old) in Mapperley. The vast majority the flats are already disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in Mapperley?
If you are acquiring a property with the assistance of a mortgage, your mortgage company will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Mapperley conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to switch to another solicitor for your conveyancing in Mapperley.
I purchased a freehold residence in Mapperley yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Mapperley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Mapperley 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
My friend recommended that if I am purchasing in Mapperley I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Mapperley conveyancing searches.

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Mapperley Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Mapperley.
