Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beaconsfield

I am the registered owner of a freehold property in Beaconsfield but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Beaconsfield and has limited impact for conveyancing in Beaconsfield 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 establishment 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 post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel lawyer as I would much rather use a Beaconsfield based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the the likelihood is that allocate you one of their panel lawyers if you take up the "fee-free" offer. Call the bank to determine if they offer you a monetary alternative.

Local searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Beaconsfield.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Beaconsfield took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
