I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in Bradley Stoke yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Bradley Stoke and has limited impact for conveyancing in Bradley Stoke 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 new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
My fiance and I are hoping to buy a 3 bedroom flat in Bradley Stoke with a residential mortgage from Aldermore.We like our Bradley Stoke conveyancing solicitor but Aldermore informed us her practice is not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Aldermore panel firm or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Aldermore use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the Aldermore approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore
