Natasha Wain got in touch to try to get some advice regarding Manorial Rights on some of the properties in Raunds.
“I’m trying to remortgage my house and the title deeds are showing that there are manorial rights to the property, this has never come up before when trying to remortgage and now the conveyancing company want £185 to inform the lender of a ridiculous right that will never be presented!
I have looked into indemnity insurance to see if this will satisfy the lender but it seems I’m still going to be charged, any advice out there please?”
This topic has come up on Raunds Town Voice back in 2013
We’ve also found an article from BBC News back in 2013 after more than 2500 householders in Raunds and Irchester received letters telling them the Queen has rights over minerals under their properties.
Even though you may believe you own your own plot of land, the fact is that you may only own what is on the surface and not what’s beneath
Can anyone provide any more guidance? – did you get a letter and have you tried selling your house since or remortgaging?
