Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Mobberley is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his conveyancing?
That is more than likely a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Mobberley conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
I purchased a freehold house in Mobberley but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Mobberley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Mobberley 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 generation 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 in 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.
