It has come to my attention via my broker that my Northern Moor property lawyer is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. How can I be sure if this is correct?
The first thing you need to do is to call your Northern Moor conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your mortgage company.
I own a freehold premises in Northern Moor but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Northern Moor and has limited impact for conveyancing in Northern Moor 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 in 2037 is to be extinguished.
