I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Tonbridge is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Tonbridge are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Tonbridge you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Tonbridge may ascertain 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.

Should I be wary about estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Tonbridge conveyancing firm?

As is the case with many service providers, often recommendations from relatives can be most helpful. Nevertheless there are lots of parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all suggest conveyancers to use. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are free to appoint your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that some mortgage providers operate an approved list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the mortgage related work in your conveyancing.
