I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Farnham Royal yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Farnham Royal and has limited impact for conveyancing in Farnham Royal 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 generation of new rentcharges post 1977.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be extinguished.

I am the sole recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Farnham Royal. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in April. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation chiefly exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

I have paid off my mortgage with Kent Reliance. I assume I don't need a Farnham Royal conveyancing practitioner on the Kent Reliance panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Kent Reliance mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly.

Kent Reliance, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Kent Reliance has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Kent Reliance has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Kent Reliance mortgage has been paid off.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Farnham Royal on 28/3/2024, valuation was booked 3 days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Bank of Ireland and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Bank of Ireland to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Farnham Royal I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Farnham Royal for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

We yesterday discovered that one of the directors of the solicitors undertaking the purchase conveyancing in Farnham Royal is is the sister of the vendor. Is this permitted?

On the basis that there is no conflict of interest this is allowable. If you are needing mortgage finance then the lender may have a say as many lenders have specific requirements on this. For example for Halifax as of 14/5/2024, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Not if the person dealing is the borrower or a member of the borrower's immediate family. Your firm may act if a separate fee earner of no less standing or a partner in the firm acts for us.
