I own a freehold property in Brundall but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Brundall and has limited impact for conveyancing in Brundall 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 creation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.
In reading consumer advice sites for an affordable solicitor in Brundall, most advise that I must look for a CQS accredited solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in home ownership transfers, trusted by some of the UK's major lenders. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Association of British Insurers (ABI). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Brundall is one of the many areas of the UK where there are Accredited solicitors.
We are aiming to move house in May. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Brundall. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this site.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the selling agent however this can only happen after the previous owners conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be given over. You will need to advise the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Brundall or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Brundall.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Brundall conveyancing practitioners were appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Co-operative completed the valuation? Have you advised Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
We expect to receive a DIP from Clydesdale this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Clydesdale recommend any Brundall solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Brundall solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Clydesdale through the process.
I decided to have a survey done on a property in Brundall before retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of premises.
It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can check with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Brundall. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
Can you set examples of compelling benefits to choosing a high street property lawyer in Brundall
Many purchasers and sellers in Brundall select a local property lawyer so that they can visit if they have questions, and to collect documents rather than run the risk of depending on the Royal Mail.
There is a distinct benefit when opting for a conveyancer nearby to a house you are purchasing, due to the knowledge of the area and possible local concerns - but this is moot. Most conveyancers conduct their communications via email and may be any place in the world.
