Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Brent Park is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Brent Park are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Brent Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brent Park 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.
I have been recommended by numerous property agents in Brent Park to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your site rather than a competitor’s?
We refuse to give any commission for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
