Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Accrington is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Accrington are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Accrington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Accrington may determine 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 residence.

How simple is it to use the search tool to choose a conveyancing lawyer in Accrington on the panel for my mortgage?

We are thinking of using a web based conveyancer ahead of a Accrington conveyancing firm. Am I making a mistake?

There are advantages of being able to pop in to a local Accrington conveyancing solicitor such as

  • signing papers same day

  • the ability to raise concerns if things go pear-shaped

When analysing estimates, look out for hidden extras. Most decent Accrington high street solicitors give an all-inclusive figure. Many online agents seem to offer low cost prices, yet have burried 'extras' in the fine print.
