It is rare for properties in Swinton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Swinton 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 creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Swinton building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Swinton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Provided that the lawyer is on the mortgage company approved list, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

My wife and I have a semi-detached Georgian house in Swinton. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Alliance & Leicester . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Swinton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we instruct their recommended conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Swinton

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Swinton conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.
