I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Hook is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Hook are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hook you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Hook 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 premises.
