Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Swadlincote is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Swadlincote are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Swadlincote 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 Swadlincote 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.
My partner has urged me to use his conveyancers in Swadlincote. Should I find my own solicitor?
No doubt the ideal way to select a conveyancing solicitor is to seek recommendations from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the solicitor that you are considering.
My lawyers in Swadlincote have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the mortgage company directly.
