Back In 2008, I bought a leasehold house in East Croydon. Conveyancing and Accord Mortgages Ltd mortgage went though with no issue. 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 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in East Croydon who acted for me is not around. What should I do?

First contact the Land Registry to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a East Croydon conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

This case was in relation to 4 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 98 years.

I have appointed a East Croydon conveyancing solicitor for our home move (novice purchasers) and have spotted in the Ts and Cs that they are not overseen by the FCA. Need I be worried or is that standard with lawyer?
