Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holmrook

I purchased a freehold residence in Holmrook yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

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

Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be extinguished.

Can you help - my lawyer says that absentee landlord insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Holmrook?

I have paid off my mortgage with Lloyds. I assume I don't need a Holmrook conveyancing practitioner on the Lloyds panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Lloyds mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Lloyds mortgage from the register. Lloyds, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Lloyds has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Lloyds has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Lloyds mortgage has been paid off.

    Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the agent informed us that the seller will only move forward if we use the agent's chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Holmrook

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. If they require ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Holmrook conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will earn their estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
