Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Blackley is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Blackley are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Blackley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Blackley 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 premises.
Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Blackley basement flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Blackley conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
The lease governs relations between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Blackley do not prevent subletting altogether – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
