My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Adamsdown. Conveyancing and Coventry Building Society mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Adamsdown who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. There is no need to instruct a Adamsdown conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased parent's Will, with a house in Adamsdown which is to be marketed. The house is unregistered at the Land Registry and I'm advised that some estate agents will insist that it is completed before they'll move forward. What's the mechanism for this?
In the situation you refer to it seems advisable to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
