Flying freeholds in Bedford Hill are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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.

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor flat in Bedford Hill. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

It best that you discharge the maintenance contribution as you normally would given that all rents and maintenance charges should be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
