I purchased a freehold property in Meliden but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Meliden and has limited impact for conveyancing in Meliden 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment 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 after 2037 will be extinguished.
How can we tell if a Meliden conveyancing solicitor on the Nottingham panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Meliden seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer conducting your transaction.
We expect to receive a DIP from Principality this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Meliden solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Meliden solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Meliden. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Soon after, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Co-operative panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Meliden is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Meliden are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Meliden you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Meliden may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
