I own a freehold premises in Great Missenden but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Great Missenden and has limited impact for conveyancing in Great Missenden 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 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 post 2037 will be extinguished.

It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Great Missenden building society branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Great Missenden conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend based on their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the conveyancing practitioner is on the mortgage company panel, they must comply with the CML Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

How does conveyancing in Great Missenden differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Great Missenden contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Great Missenden usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Great Missenden or who has acted in the same development.
