I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Beckermet but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Beckermet and has limited impact for conveyancing in Beckermet 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 establishment of fresh rentcharges post 1977.

How does conveyancing in Beckermet differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Beckermet approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Beckermet typically acquire 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Beckermet or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Beckermet I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Beckermet in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

What does commercial conveyancing in Beckermet cover?

Commercial conveyancing in Beckermet incorporates a broad array of services, supplied by regulated solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of tenancies.

I own a leasehold flat in Beckermet. Conveyancing was finalised in last year. I have heard that I mustn’t allow the the remaining lease term to get too low. Why is that a problem?

Beckermet residential long term leases are for a set term - usually just under one hundred years when they are first granted. However many flats in Beckermet were built or converted 20 or more years ago and so such leases now have under 80 years remaining. That may seem like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions generally require leases to have at least 75 years remaining to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing seventy five years. To enhance the marketability of your property you should be thinking about whether to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also advantages to doing so before the lease hits 80 years as when the lease falls below eighty years the premium to be paid to extend starts to increase.
