I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Fenny Stratford is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Fenny Stratford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Fenny Stratford 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.
