I am the registered owner of a freehold property in Noak Hill but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Noak Hill and has limited impact for conveyancing in Noak Hill 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 creation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

About to purchase flat in Noak Hill. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Noak Hill lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Noak Hill I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Noak Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
