I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Forestdale is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Forestdale are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Forestdale you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Forestdale 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 just started marketing my garden flat in Forestdale. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just received a half-yearly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all rents and service payments should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
