I own a freehold premises in Hanham yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Hanham and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hanham 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 generation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.
The deeds to our property are lost. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Hanham 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be held by HMLR under a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and obtain up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.
I am purchasing my first flat in Hanham with a mortgage from Halifax. The sellers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
