The owners have rather pushy vendors who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are two main downsides with executing a lock out agreement (sometimes referred to as a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular by Hainault conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A supplemental negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer should not expect to be granted injunctive relief to bar the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in limited circumstances, the extra payment of damages.
I own a freehold house in Hainault but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Hainault and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hainault 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 many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be extinguished.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Hainault I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hainault suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

Even though your last Hainault conveyancing solicitor is not available you can check your lease to check if you are permitted to let out the apartment. The rule is that if the deeds are silent, subletting is permitted. There may be a precondition that you are obliged to obtain permission from your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. This means that you cannot sublet without first obtaining consent. Such consent must not not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord for their consent.
