Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Bramhall is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Bramhall are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bramhall you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bramhall 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.

We are in the throes of selling our flat in Bramhall. Conveyancing is fine but we are being charged an extortionate amount from the freeholder. To date we have forked out £268 for a leasehold management pack and then another £200 plus VAT for additional questions raised by the buyers property lawyer.

Your property lawyer will not have any control over the level of the fee for this information but the average costs for the information for Bramhall leasehold property is £360. For Bramhall conveyancing sales it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The freeholder or their agents are not duty bound to answer these questions most will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices out of proportion to the work involved. Regretfully there is no legislation that mandates fixed fees for administrative tasks. Nor is there any prescriptive time frame by which they are duty bound to issue the information.
