I purchased a freehold residence in Daventry but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Daventry and has limited impact for conveyancing in Daventry 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 generation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.

Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Daventry I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Daventry for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

Daventry conveyancing for business premises incorporates a broad array of guidance, provided by regulated solicitors, relating to business property.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Daventry. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Daventry - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
