Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Arkley

I purchased a freehold residence in Arkley yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Arkley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Arkley 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 establishment of fresh 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 is to be dispensed with completely.

Are all Arkley Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the TSB conveyancing list of approved firms?

Some major banks and building societies now use CQS as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Clydesdale. Is it usual for Clydesdale to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Arkley is approved on their conveyancing panel? Clydesdale have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

The lawyers undertaking our conveyancing in Arkley has sent papers to review that indicate that the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not currently recorded at HMLR?

Although most properties in Arkley are now registered with HM Land Registry there are still a few that remain unregistered. Any property in Arkley that has been remortgaged since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HMLR under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Arkley property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Arkley conveyancing practitioners will be able to handle such matters but if any uncertainty reigns the conventional advice presently appears to be for the current owners to undertake the registration formalities first and then sell - this undoubtedly cause a significant delay.
