I purchased a freehold property in Mile End but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Mile End and has limited impact for conveyancing in Mile End 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 post 1977.
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 extinguished.
We are purchasing a terrace house in Mile End. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to ascertain if these works are allowed?
Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Mile End will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain alterations or require the consent of another owner. Some works need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Kent Reliance. I assume I don't need a Mile End property lawyer on the Kent Reliance panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Kent Reliance mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Kent Reliance mortgage from the register. Kent Reliance, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Kent Reliance has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Kent Reliance has instructed the Land Registry to do so
