Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Castleton

My wife and I are about to complete buying a house in Castleton but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the seller in the sum of £2k taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet Co-operative will not permit this. Should they have been approached?

Your conveyancer that is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is required to disclose to Co-operative of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to report the reduction to Co-operative then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Co-operative and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Castleton.

It is rare for properties in Castleton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Castleton 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 fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
