Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Skelmersdale

I purchased a freehold premises in Skelmersdale but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Skelmersdale and has limited impact for conveyancing in Skelmersdale 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 lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

Telephone UBS or the financial adviser and complete any relevant forms. UBS will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or vendor to arrange a time for the valuation to occur.

What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Aldermore?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Skelmersdale conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market.

Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Skelmersdale.

How does conveyancing in Skelmersdale differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Skelmersdale come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Skelmersdale usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Skelmersdale or who has acted in the same development.
