I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Battlesbridge is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Battlesbridge are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Battlesbridge you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Battlesbridge 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.

It is highly unlikely the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on our sale of a £475,000 maisonette in Battlesbridge on Thursday in a week. The freeholder has quoted £372 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Battlesbridge?

Battlesbridge conveyancing on leasehold flats often involves the buyer’s conveyancer sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer these enquiries most will be content to assist. They are at liberty to charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it exceeds £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that one has little option but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to complete the sale of your home.
