I purchased a freehold premises in Tetbury but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Tetbury and has limited impact for conveyancing in Tetbury 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 new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be extinguished.
We previously selected conveyancing lawyers with offices in Tetbury on the Nationwide solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate charge for handling the Nationwide mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Nationwide?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Nationwide but by your Tetbury property lawyer. Some firms on the Nationwide panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
Can I be sure that the Tetbury conveyancing solicitor on the Principality panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Tetbury seeking recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer handling your transaction.
The mortgage over my property is with Lloyds for my property in Tetbury. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Lloyds?
Lloyds must be informed of your intention before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Lloyds will permit you to let 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 Lloyds directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor.
How does conveyancing in Tetbury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Tetbury approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because house builders in Tetbury typically purchase the land, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Tetbury or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Tetbury is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Tetbury are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tetbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tetbury may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
