    Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Browns Green is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Browns Green are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Browns Green you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Browns Green 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 property.

I have been advised by numerous selling agents in Browns Green to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your site rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any referral fee for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Browns Green. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Most Browns Green leasehold properties will have a service bill for the upkeep of the block levied by the freeholder. Where you buy the property you will have to pay this charge, normally in instalments accross the year. This can be anything from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for large purpose-built blocks. In all likelihood there will be a rentcharge to be met yearly, this is usually not a exorbitant sum, say approximately £50-£100 but you need to check as occasionally it could be prohibitively expensive.
