Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fallowfield

I purchased a freehold premises in Fallowfield yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Fallowfield and has limited impact for conveyancing in Fallowfield 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 establishment of new rentcharges post 1977.

Previous 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.

Can you point me to a directory of RBS panel conveyancers in Fallowfield on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings viewable online. Where you are looking for a Fallowfield solicitor on the RBS please make the most of our tool.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Aldermore. Fallowfield conveyancing practitioners are appointed. How long does it take for Aldermore to forward the offer to the solicitor?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Aldermore done the valuation? Have you advised Aldermore as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Kent Reliance are being pedantic. The Fallowfield solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Kent Reliance are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have been told that property searches are the main cause of stalling in Fallowfield house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Fallowfield.

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor apartment in Fallowfield. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently received a half-yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as normal as all ground rent and service charges should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

Fallowfield Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Queries before buying

    Many Fallowfield leasehold apartments will have a service bill for maintenance of the building levied by the freeholder. Where you buy the property you will have to pay this contribution, usually in instalments throughout the year. This may differ from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for buildings with lifts and large communal grounds. There will also be a ground rent to be met yearly, normally this is not a exorbitant amount, say around £50-£100 but you should to check as on occasion it could be prohibitively expensive. Who are the managing agents? Best to be warned whether a new roof is being put on or some other significant cost is due in the near future to be shared by the leaseholders and will materially increase the the service charges or require a one time invoice.

Me and my fiance are about to exchange on the purchase a property in Fallowfield but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have negotiated reparation from the owner of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however my mortgage company will not agree to this. Should they have been notified?

The lawyer being on a lender approved list is required to advise the bank of any amendments to the purchase amount. If you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the price change to your mortgage company then they would have to refrain from acting for you and the bank.
