My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Hither Green. Conveyancing and Barclays Direct mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Hither Green who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?

First contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion.

Where there is a missing freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to make a decision on the sum to be paid.

On 26 October 2012 District Judge Zimmels sitting at the Lambeth County Court made a Vesting Order that the Applicants be granted the right to acquire the freehold upon such terms and at such price determined by the LVT. The Tribunal arrived a figure of £39,535 as a valuation for the enfranchisement. This case was in relation to 3 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 69.05 years.

Me and my husband have agreed a price on a Hither Green apartment we inherited ten years ago in 2011. I have over ten years conveyancing knowledge and, although retired, wish to conduct the conveyancing. The purchaser's solicitor has informed me that their bank will not allow us to do our own conveyancing requiring the funds to be sent to a solicitor's bank account.

Mortgage instructions to lawyers from all CML members state that If the vendor is not legally represented the purchaser’s lawyers should check whether the mortgage company needs to be told so that a decision can be reached if they are willing to move forward.
