I purchased a freehold premises in South Wimbledon yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in South Wimbledon and has limited impact for conveyancing in South Wimbledon 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 generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous 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 aiming to move house in December. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in South Wimbledon. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this website.
On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from your selling agent but this should only be done when the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. Subsequently you will need to tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in South Wimbledon or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in South Wimbledon.
