We are getting closer to an exchange on a house in Gwernaffield and my mum and dad have sent the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not come from me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
Your lawyer is duty bound to clarify with the bank to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Gwernaffield but nevertheless 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation 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 dispensed with completely.
The deeds to my property can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Gwernaffield 4 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?
Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by the Land Registry under a Title Number.
