I am the registered owner of a freehold premises in Sunningdale but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Sunningdale and has limited impact for conveyancing in Sunningdale 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 from 1977 onwards.

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

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Sunningdale. I I am struggling to find out if they are on the Coventry Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

The first thing you should do is call the conveyancer and ask them whether they can act for the lender. Alternatively you should call Coventry Building Society who may be able to help.

My wife and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Principality as we intend to carry out improvements to our house in Sunningdale. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Sunningdale solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Principality would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Principality conveyancing panel.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Sunningdale. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Sunningdale conveyancer having made sure that they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Sunningdale surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I'm buying my first flat in Sunningdale benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about this deal as it would affect my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
