I purchased a freehold residence in South Oxhey yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in South Oxhey and has limited impact for conveyancing in South Oxhey 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 new rentcharges post 1977.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

How does conveyancing in South Oxhey differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in South Oxhey approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in South Oxhey usually buy the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in South Oxhey or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in South Oxhey I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in South Oxhey suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Do I need to attend the offices of the lender conveyancing panel solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in South Oxhey so that I can attend their offices when needed.

This means that they can undertake your Conveyancing Transaction no matter where you live in England or Wales.
