Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Calstock is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Calstock are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Calstock you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Calstock 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 property.

We are one month into a residential purchase having been directed to a firm by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Calstock. I am not happy. Could you help me find new lawyers?

They would have to be very bad to suggest replacing them. Has your loan offer been issued? In the event that it has you must make them aware of the new conveyancer and have the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. Your conveyancer should be on the banks approved list to avoid supplemental fees and delays. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors.

Back In 2009, I bought a leasehold house in Calstock. Conveyancing and Aldermore mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Calstock who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Calstock conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I acquired a 2 bed flat in Calstock, conveyancing having been completed 6 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Calstock with over 90 years remaining are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2086

With only 68 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

A couple of weeks ago I was told by my lender that their approved solicitors work on no completion no fee basis for conveyancing in Calstock. My purchase did not proceed nevertheless the lawyers have invoiced for search fees! They are claiming that the fees are seperate!

Calstock conveyancing search fees are separate expenses not solicitors costs as these are payable to a third party.
