I own a freehold property in Rossington yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Rossington and has limited impact for conveyancing in Rossington 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 new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to visit the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Rossington so that I can pop in to their offices if necessary.
Nowadays approved lawyers for banks conduct all of the work through the post, e-mail or over the phone. This enables them to carry out the legal work for your home move regardless of where you live in the country. That being said you can see if you have the option of going to the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if needed.

I was pointed in your direction by a couple of local property agents in Rossington to choose a solicitor on your site. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t offer any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
Living abroad I am unable to visit my Rossington conveyancing lawyers office to sign documents for conveyancing in Rossington – is this a problem?
