The sellers of the house we are purchasing hired a conveyancing solicitor in Frampton Cotterell who has suggested a lock out contract with a down payment 10k. Are such agreements sensible?

Lock out contracts are contracts between a property vendor and purchaser granting the buyer the sole right to the sale of the premises within an agreed time frame. Essentially, an exclusivity is a document stating that you should have a contract at a later time being the contract for the actual sale. It is generally utilised for buyer protection though in some cases, the proprietor may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are many pros and cons to using them but you need to check with your conveyancer but beware that it may end up incurring more in conveyancing charges. In light of this these agreements are avoided in relation to conveyancing in Frampton Cotterell.

I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in Frampton Cotterell but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Frampton Cotterell and has limited impact for conveyancing in Frampton Cotterell 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 from 1977 onwards.

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

I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a high street conveyancing solicitor in Frampton Cotterell?

Do check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel lawyers if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the bank to explore if they allow a monetary alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Frampton Cotterell.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Frampton Cotterell I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Frampton Cotterell for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I own a leasehold house in Frampton Cotterell. Conveyancing and Alliance & Leicester mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing solicitor in Frampton Cotterell who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
