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

Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders might all recommend solicitors to use. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that some banks have an approved list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
