Completed the sale of my flat in Aylesbury last July yet the purchaser is texting daily complaining that her lawyer needs to hear from myconveyancer. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Aylesbury is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Aylesbury are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Aylesbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Aylesbury may decide 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 property.

Back In 2005, I bought a leasehold house in Aylesbury. Conveyancing and Yorkshire Building Society mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing practitioner in Aylesbury who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?

First contact HMLR to be sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Aylesbury conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Not every individual in the company must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the conveyancing, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
