I own a freehold residence in Hampton yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Hampton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hampton 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 generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

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

How does conveyancing in Hampton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Hampton come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Hampton tend to buy the real estate, 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 Hampton or who has acted in the same development.

If you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.
