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

It’s unusual for properties in Gwernaffield and has limited impact for conveyancing in Gwernaffield 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 establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

I am refinancing my property in Gwernaffield, does my lawyer have to be on the Coventry BS Conveyancing panel?

Our offer on a property in Gwernaffield has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Gwernaffield. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Gwernaffield conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Yorkshire BS approved list.

During a rising market the majority of buyers will apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Gwernaffield.

The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan.
