I am soon to complete buying a house in Resolven but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor of £3k taking the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Barclays will not permit this. Should they have been involved?
Any conveyancer that is on a Barclays conveyancing panel is required to advise Barclays of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to notify the reduction to Barclays then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Barclays and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Resolven.
I own a freehold house in Resolven but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Resolven and has limited impact for conveyancing in Resolven 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 post 1977.
Previous 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Resolven I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Resolven in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
