It has come to my attention via my broker that my Aylsham the law firm I have appointed is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. How can I check?

I purchased a freehold property in Aylsham but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Aylsham and has limited impact for conveyancing in Aylsham 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 creation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.

I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel solicitor as I would much rather appoint a Aylsham based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel solicitors if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the mortgage company and ask if they allow a cash alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Aylsham.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Aylsham. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Aylsham

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Aylsham is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Aylsham are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Aylsham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Aylsham may decide 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 residence.

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Aylsham?

Conveyancing - in Aylsham or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are purchasing and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the defects prior to you move in.
