I purchased a freehold house in Prestbury yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Prestbury and has limited impact for conveyancing in Prestbury 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 establishment of new rentcharges post 1977.

Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

I am helping my aunt sell her flat in Prestbury. Does the solicitor arrange an EPC or do I organise this?

Following the abolition of HIPs, EPC’s was kept a mandatory component of selling a property. An energy performance certificate should be commissioned prior to the property being marketed. This is not a task that law firms ordinarily organise. If you are using a Prestbury conveyancing solicitor they might help arrange energy assessments due to their relationships with reputable local accredited person

I am planning to move house in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Prestbury. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your estate agent but this can only take place after the previous owners solicitors inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. Subsequently you should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Prestbury or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Prestbury.

My wife and I purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Prestbury. The intention is to convert the garage to an office at the property.Will legal investigations on the property involve checks to determine if these alterations are allowed?

Your property lawyer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Prestbury can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of alterations or necessitated the permission of a 3rd party. Certain extensions call for local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Prestbury 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?

In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your solicitor should know exactly where to locate all the suitable documentation so you may purchase or dispose of your house without any difficulty. If copies can’t be found, your solicitor can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on the premises.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Prestbury is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Prestbury are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Prestbury you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Prestbury 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.

I was pointed in your direction by a number of property agents in Prestbury to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to promote your services rather than a competitor’s?

We refuse to offer any financial incentive for sending work our way. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
