Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bedmond

We have rather pushy vendors who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a payment of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are two primary downsides with signing a lock out contract (occasionally termed an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not promoted by Bedmond conveyancing solicitors for this reason. The other main issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to secure an injunctive ruling by a court to bar the vendor disposing of the property to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in restricted scenarios, the extra payment of damages.

I own a freehold house in Bedmond but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Bedmond and has limited impact for conveyancing in Bedmond 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 fresh rentcharges post 1977.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be extinguished.

My colleague suggested that where I am buying in Bedmond I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is occasionally included in the estimate for your Bedmond conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Bedmond around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Bedmond Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Bedmond Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Bedmond.

My wife and I own a terraced Edwardian property in Bedmond. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Santander. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Bedmond and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.

I am buying a new build house in Bedmond benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this deal as it would affect my mortgage with TSB. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Bedmond before retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor advised that some banks tend not give a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bedmond. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Bedmond to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
