Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Molesey

I own a freehold residence in East Molesey but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in East Molesey and has limited impact for conveyancing in East Molesey 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 establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one close by in East Molesey I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in East Molesey in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
