Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Beaufort is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Beaufort are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Beaufort you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Beaufort may ascertain 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 premises.
