I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and have to vacate my rented apartment in Frimley by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. Is it possible to complete in a couple of weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to serve notice on a rental unless your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not previously done so, contact to your conveyancer and request that they apply pressure on the sellers lawyers, try to get a realistic time scale from them that all parties will look to achieve
I am the registered owner of a freehold premises in Frimley but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Frimley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Frimley 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.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be extinguished.
