We were just about to exchange contracts for a property in North Ferriby. We encountered a problem. Our mortgage offer with National Westminster Bank expires on 23/11/2020 but the owners are insisting on a completion date of 25/11/2020. Is it possible to extend the loan offer?
The person best placed to address this issue is your lawyer who should determine if he or she is should be discussing with the bank, owner’s representatives, estate agents or conceivably all three given what has gone on in your house move as of today.
I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in North Ferriby but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in North Ferriby and has limited impact for conveyancing in North Ferriby 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 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 lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be extinguished.
