Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Walsingham

I own a freehold house in Walsingham but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Walsingham and has limited impact for conveyancing in Walsingham 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.

Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

How does conveyancing in Walsingham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Walsingham come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Walsingham tend to purchase the real estate, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Walsingham or who has acted in the same development.

I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Walsingham. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently received a yearly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as normal given that all rents and service charges will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until 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.
