I purchased a freehold premises in Stanley yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Stanley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Stanley 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 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 after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

I am assisting my sister sell her flat in Stanley. Will the conveyancing solicitor order the energy assessment or it is for the seller to coordinate?

After the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates was maintained a compulsory component of selling a house. An EPC needs to be to hand in advance of the property being placed on the market. This is not as aspect of the sale process that solicitors normally organise. Where you are using a Stanley conveyancing practitioner they might help arrange energy assessments given their relationships with reputable local energy assessors

I have a mortgage with RBS for my property in Stanley. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform RBS?

You must advise RBS in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of RBS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact RBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a RBS conveyancing panel lawyer.

Our offer on a detached house in Stanley has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Stanley. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Stanley conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Coventry BS approved list. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers would apply for a home loan with Coventry BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Stanley.

Am I better off to instruct a Stanley conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can handle the legal work but they are based 200miles away.

The primary upside of using a local Stanley conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and on the whole were content that should outweigh using an unknown Stanley conveyancing solicitor just because they are Stanley based.

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor apartment in Stanley. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently had a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you discharge the maintenance contribution as normal as all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I purchased a basement flat in Stanley, conveyancing formalities finalised April 1998. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Stanley with an extended lease are worth £227,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2094

With only 71 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
