I own a freehold property in Bromley but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Bromley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Bromley 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 generation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
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 dispensed with completely.
Can you point me to a directory of Co-operative panel solicitors in Bromley on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few banks make their panel listings available online. Where you are looking for a Bromley lawyer on the Co-operative please make the most of our facility.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Santander are being problematic. The Bromley solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Santander are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Virgin Money have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a house in Bromley has been accepted, now what?
Your property agent will need to be advised as to your solicitor's details (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Call up Virgin Money or the broker and finish off any appropriate paperwork. Virgin Money will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or owners to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Virgin Money will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Bromley.
Just bought a detached house in Bromley , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Bromley conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my ownership is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Bromley is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any third parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration occurs once the new owner has moved in to the property thus post completion formalities is not typically primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
