I can't travel far from Robertsbridge. Can you please clarify why all Robertsbridge solicitors are not on all mortgage company panels?
Lenders ordinarily impose restrictions on either the nature or the number of conveyancing practices on their panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that the firm is required to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some banks made a decision to limit the size of their panel they allow to represent them. It is worth noting that lenders have no liability for the accuracy of conveyancing given by any Robertsbridge conveyancer on their panel. Increases in mortgage fraud was the primary trigger for the culling of solicitor panels in the last decade even though there are conflicting points of view concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data via HM Land Registry indicates that thousands of conveyancing organisations only transact a couple of conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel culls question why law firms should have claim to be on a conveyancing panel when clearly conveyancing is not their primary expertise?
I am the registered owner of a freehold premises in Robertsbridge but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Robertsbridge and has limited impact for conveyancing in Robertsbridge 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 fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Robertsbridge I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Robertsbridge suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
