I own a freehold property in Canford Cliffs yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Canford Cliffs and has limited impact for conveyancing in Canford Cliffs 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be extinguished.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Barclays are being problematic. The Canford Cliffs solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Barclays are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays 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.
We are downsizing from our home in Canford Cliffs and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Canford Cliffs lawyer would know this is not the case.

Having lived in Canford Cliffs for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
