I purchased a freehold premises in Moston but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Moston and has limited impact for conveyancing in Moston 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 creation of fresh 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 in 2037 will be extinguished.
My partner and I are planning on selling our home in Moston and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Moston. Having lived in Moston for three years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
How does conveyancing in Moston differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Moston come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Moston typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Moston or who has acted in the same development.
