Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Pevensey is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Pevensey are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Pevensey you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Pevensey 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.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Pevensey. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I inherited a 1 bedroom flat in Pevensey, conveyancing having been completed August 2008. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent properties in Pevensey with over 90 years remaining are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2090

With 66 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £11,400 and £13,200 as well as professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

My property lawyer in Pevensey is asking me for personal identification documents asserting that this is part of his retainer as a solicitor on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. Can this be correct?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require Pevensey conveyancing solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identity of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lawyer is right that the lender also require certain documents to be viewed. If a you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the lender's UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements
