Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Stony Stratford is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Stony Stratford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Stony Stratford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stony Stratford 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.

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the agent advised that the vendor will only go ahead if we appoint their chosen lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Stony Stratford

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Stony Stratford conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by HQ.
