I purchased a freehold house in North Wembley yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in North Wembley and has limited impact for conveyancing in North Wembley 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 creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
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 extinguished.
My property lawyer in North Wembley is not on the National Westminster Bank Approved Panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my family solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the National Westminster Bank list of approved lawyers?

- Get an alternative solicitor to act in the conveyancing, obviously checking they are National Westminster Bank approved.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in North Wembley and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in North Wembley. We have lived in North Wembley for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You should 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 illness)
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in North Wembley I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in North Wembley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
I have recently had an offer accepted on a leasehold flat in North Wembley and the broker that we are dealing with recommended his conveyancer. He quoted £800 including VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound like a good deal?
