I purchased a freehold premises in Yaxley but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Yaxley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Yaxley 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 hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed flat in Yaxley. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a yearly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as you normally would as all rents and maintenance payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

With just 55 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as costs.

Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
