I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Looe but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Looe and has limited impact for conveyancing in Looe 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 establishment of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Looe. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Looe - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I own a basement flat in Looe, conveyancing was carried out in 2012. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Looe with an extended lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2100

You have 76 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
