What does a local search inform me concerning the house I am purchasing in Beverley?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Beverley is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Beverley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Beverley you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Beverley 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.

I am attracted to a two apartments in Beverley which have about forty five years unexpired on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease shortens the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
