I purchased a freehold premises in Hoxton but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Hoxton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hoxton 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.

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

Just bought a terraced house in Hoxton , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Hoxton conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check that my purchase is registered.

Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration takes place after the buyer has moved in to the premises so post completion formalities is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
