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, no chain conveyancing. Longridge is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?

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

I have been recommended by a number of estate agents in Longridge to choose a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your services ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t give any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the property agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Longridge

We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is counter productive. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Longridge conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets set by senior management.

I own a leasehold flat in Longridge. Conveyancing and Leeds Building Society mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing solicitor in Longridge who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Longridge conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

    It would be prudent to find out as much as possible concerning the managing agents as they will either make living at the property much easier or problematic. Being a leasehold owner you will be at the mercy of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to practical issues such as the tidiness of the common parts. Ask other tenants if they are happy with their management. Finally, be sure you discover the dates that the maintenance fees are due to the managing agents and specifically how they are spending that money. How many years remain on the lease? What is the maintenance charge and ground rent on the apartment?
