Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Kew is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Kew are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Kew 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 Kew 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 residence.
