I own a freehold premises in Greenford but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Greenford and has limited impact for conveyancing in Greenford 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to use a Greenford based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the chances are that give you one of their panel solicitors if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the bank and determine if they allow a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Greenford.

How does conveyancing in Greenford differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Greenford come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Greenford tend to 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 used to new build conveyancing in Greenford or who has acted in the same development.
