Recently asked questions about conveyancing in South London

I went with a South London based firm for our conveyancing in South London recently. Upon checking the Terms I noteI am liable for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Would I be best advised to instruct an internet conveyancing brokerage promoting no completion no cost conveyancing in South London?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to neutralise those conveyances that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such offerings tend not to cover expenditure for instance South London conveyancing search expenses.

I purchased a freehold property in South London but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in South London and has limited impact for conveyancing in South London 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 many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of fresh 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 post 2037 will be extinguished.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to list practices on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for example in South London?

Lexsure has not been advised of any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a register.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in South London ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will refuse to grant a loan on such a premises.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in South London.
