I own a freehold residence in West Derby but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in West Derby and has limited impact for conveyancing in West Derby 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation 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 is to be dispensed with completely.
I am downsizing from our property in West Derby and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street West Derby conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in West Derby. We have lived in West Derby for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
Have purchased a a semi-detached house in West Derby , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My West Derby conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my name is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in West Derby is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
