Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Great Shelford

I own a freehold house in Great Shelford but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Great Shelford and has limited impact for conveyancing in Great Shelford 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 date back many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of new rentcharges post 1977.

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

Most buyers of new build property in Great Shelford come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Great Shelford typically buy the site, 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 property lawyers 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 Shelford or who has acted in the same development.
