I am the registered owner of a freehold property in Alvaston yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Alvaston and has limited impact for conveyancing in Alvaston 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 many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
What is the best way to check that the solicitor handling my conveyancing in Alvaston is on the bank’sapproved panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Lloyds TSB Bank thus paying £192.00 in further conveyancing invoice.

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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)
