Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Merton Park is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Merton Park are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Merton Park you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Merton Park 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 residence.
