I am buying a property mortgage free in Marlow. I have lived for the last 20 years in Marlow. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a home loan, then all but one or two of the Marlow conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he has a professional duty to take that path of advice. One thing to consider; if you are going to sell the house in the future, it will be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where houses with no practical issues can still reveal adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Marlow should be able to give you some helpful guidance concerning this.
I purchased a freehold house in Marlow but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Marlow and has limited impact for conveyancing in Marlow 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 new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

Have completed on a a terraced house in Marlow , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Marlow conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my ownership is recorded.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Marlow registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the new owner is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not always an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
