Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Dymock is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Dymock are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Dymock you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Dymock 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.
I have been pointed in your direction by a few property agents in Dymock to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your site rather than a competitor’s?
We don’t offer any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
If all goes to plan we aim to complete the disposal of our £250,000 garden flat in Dymock in just under a week. The management company has quoted £396 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge.

Dymock conveyancing on leasehold apartments nine out of ten times results in administration charges levied by landlords agents :
Completing pre-contract questions
Where consent is required before sale in Dymock
Supplying insurance information
Deeds of covenant upon sale
Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale

Our estate agent has suggested using their conveyancer for the conveyancing in Dymock - won’t it be easier to just instruct them?
It is not always the case and you are entitled to instruct whichever conveyancing practitioner you prefer for your Dymock conveyancing. The conveyancing practitioner recommended by a 3rd party adviser may not necessarily be the right property lawyer, they may suggest their preferred conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancing practitioner and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain updates.
