I purchased a freehold house in Rayners Lane yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Rayners Lane and has limited impact for conveyancing in Rayners Lane 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 new rentcharges post 1977.
Old 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 dispensed with completely.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a garden flat in Rayners Lane. Do I pick up the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Rayners Lane?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Aldermore are being problematic. The Rayners Lane solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Aldermore are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Aldermore may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I had an offer accepted on a house in Rayners Lane on 11/9/2019, valuation was booked five days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Yorkshire BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
