We are about to exchange buying a house in Porthmadog but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the owner of six thousand pounds by way of a reduction in the price.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Porthmadog is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Porthmadog are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Porthmadog you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Porthmadog 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 premises.
