I own a freehold property in Alperton but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Alperton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Alperton 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 have existed for hundreds of years, 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 after 2037 will be extinguished.

How does conveyancing in Alperton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Alperton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Alperton typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Alperton or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Alperton is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Alperton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Alperton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Alperton may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
