I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Frodsham is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Frodsham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Frodsham may ascertain 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 residence.

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the Court.

It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer both on proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Frodsham.

New build sellers have suggested I use a property lawyer and I've sought an estimate from them. It's almost two hundred pounds cheaper than my family Frodsham property lawyer. Should I use them?
Developers frequently have lists of conveyancing practitioners who are quick and who know the seller’s paperwork and lawyer. Plenty of developers offer an incentive to choose a preferred conveyancer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a developer will not suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they demand an exchange inside a month. The argument for not opting for the suggested lawyer is that they may be unwilling to fight for your interests at the risk of upsetting the developer. If you worry that this may be the situation you should remain with your high street Frodsham solicitor.
