I decided to go with a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Little Oakley recently. Upon checking the Terms it is apparent thatwe are responsible for costs even if the dealfalls through. Would I be best advised to use a web based lawyer advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Little Oakley?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to cover those transactions that fail to complete. Do bear in mind that these offerings generally do not cover outlay by way of example Little Oakley conveyancing search fees.
I own a freehold house in Little Oakley yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Little Oakley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Little Oakley 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 have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.
I have a renovated Victorian property in Little Oakley. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Little Oakley and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Little Oakley in advance of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.
