I am the registered owner of a freehold premises in Chathill yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Chathill and has limited impact for conveyancing in Chathill 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 creation of new 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 post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

Me and my brother own a terraced Georgian house in Chathill. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Alliance & Leicester . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Chathill and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Chathill before retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not grant a mortgage on such a home.

We're new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we instruct their chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Chathill

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Chathill conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets set by corporate headquarters.

We have recently had an offer accepted on our 1st house in Chathill, and are about to get solicitors instructed. I have used the numerous comparison tools and the fee estimates are from all over the country. Is it important to have a Chathill property lawyer local to our prospective house? I am willing to do everything over email, but I assume at some point we may need to physically go into the solicitor's office to sign contracts?

Usually there is no need to physically visit the office of your conveyancing practitioner, they can post any relevant papers to you, which you can sign and send back. Many buyers and sellers nevertheless opt to instruct a locally based solicitor, but it's by no means a prerequisite for conveyancing in Chathill.
