I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Keswick is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Keswick are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Keswick you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Keswick 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 property.
As co-executor for the will of my grandmother I am disposing of a house in Cardiff but live in Keswick. My lawyer (approximately 250 miles awayrequires that I sign a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Keswick to witness this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you should not be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Keswick based
Helen (my wife) and I may need to sub-let our Keswick garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Keswick conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
A lease governs the relationship between the landlord and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Keswick do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the sublease.

Partway through the sale of a leasehold flat in Keswick. Conveyancing is fine but we have been asked to pay an extortionate amount by the freeholder. To date we have forked out £225 for a leasehold management pack and then another £118 for responses to queries raised by the buyers property lawyer.
You will not have control over the level of the charges for this information however the typical fee for the information for Keswick leasehold property is £350. For Keswick conveyancing transactions it is usual for the owner to pay for these charges. The freeholder or their agents are not duty bound to address these questions most will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices out of proportion to the work involved. Regretfully there is no law that mandates fixed charges for administrative tasks. There is no statutory time frame by which they are obliged to supply the information.
