Flying freeholds in Hoole are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hoole 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 premises.

If if people you trust used your friend and they were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Hoole conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.
