We are about to sign contracts for a semi detached house in Hornsey Rise. We have hit a snag. Our loan offer with Britannia expires on 22/5/2023 but the vendors are putting forward a completion date of 24/5/2023. Can one extend the loan expiry date?

I own a freehold house in Hornsey Rise but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Hornsey Rise and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hornsey Rise 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 from 1977 onwards.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be extinguished.

It would be advisable to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent.
