Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Duxford is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Duxford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Duxford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Duxford 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 premises.

Do I need to be suspicious about brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting an internet conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Duxford conveyancing company?

As is the case with lots of service providers, often recommendations from connections can be most helpful. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all recommend lawyers to appoint. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to choose your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that most mortgage providers have an approved list of law firms you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your conveyancing.

Back In 2001, I bought a leasehold flat in Duxford. Conveyancing and Godiva Mortgages Ltd mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing solicitor in Duxford who acted for me is not around. What should I do?

The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to instruct a Duxford conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I bought a 1st floor flat in Duxford, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Duxford with a long lease are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2084

With just 62 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £17,100 and £19,800 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
