I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Victoria Park is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Victoria Park are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Victoria Park 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 Victoria Park 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.
Should I be concerned by estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Victoria Park conveyancing practice?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often referrals from family and friends can be most helpful. But there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may recommend conveyancers to use. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are free to select your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that most lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
