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

Flying freeholds in St Neots are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside St Neots you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in St Neots 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.

Developers have suggested I use a lawyer and I've received a quote from them. It's almost £300 cheaper than my preferred St Neots conveyancer. Should I use them?

Builders often have lists of lawyers who expedite matters and who know the builder's contract and conveyancer. Plenty of developers offer an inducement to select a preferred conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a developer won't recommend a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the transaction delayed when they want exchange in 28 days. The argument for not opting for the suggested property lawyer is that they may prove reluctant to 'push' your interests for fear of upsetting the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should stick with your local St Neots lawyer.
