I purchased a freehold property in Waolstenholme yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Waolstenholme and has limited impact for conveyancing in Waolstenholme 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 redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be extinguished.
We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Waolstenholme on the Aldermore solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a separate fee for dealing with the Aldermore mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Aldermore?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Aldermore but by your Waolstenholme conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Aldermore panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
