I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Beddington is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beddington 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 property.
