It is rare for properties in Heywood and has limited impact for conveyancing in Heywood 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 creation of new rentcharges post 1977.

I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Heywood. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Heywood conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancer is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market.

three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Heywood completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
