Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Peckham is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Peckham 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 Peckham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Peckham may ascertain 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 premises.

Why can't I complete my conveyancing in Peckham on Good Friday?

This is due to the fact that on completion the money will be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s solicitor and at present this can only take place on a working day. It is not possible to complete on a saturday or sunday either.
