I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Royston but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Royston and has limited impact for conveyancing in Royston 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 creation of new rentcharges post 1977.

Previous 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.

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion.

I happen to be the sole recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Royston. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in April. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this provision is primarily there to capture subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Royston completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
