Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cirencester

I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Cirencester and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to delay the deal?

The conveyancing practitioner is duty bound to clarify with lender to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only report this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

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

It’s unusual for properties in Cirencester and has limited impact for conveyancing in Cirencester 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.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.
