As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor may charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Rumney solicitor. Numerous firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

Flying freeholds in Rumney are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Rumney you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rumney 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 property.
