I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Immingham is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

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

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 property.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Immingham. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is registered - and most are in Immingham - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I acquired a studio flat in Immingham, conveyancing having been completed in 2010. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar properties in Immingham with over 90 years remaining are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2091

With only 71 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

My wife and I have AIP from Platform Home Loans Ltd who said that they will lend up to £350k. At what point do we need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Immingham is where we plan to move to.

You can appoint a conveyancing practitioner now so that the solicitor can open the ledger so they can commence the AML checks etc. As and when you wish them to commence work they will seek a deposit usually about £200. That would generally be once you have the mortgage offer and survey back, nevertheless should you wish to speed the process you can start the ball rolling sooner even though you may be risking some expense.
