My conveyancer has discovered a a problem with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Flint Mountain. The other side have offered defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our conveyancer says that he must ensure that the mortgage company is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the mortgage company are the client. Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the bank can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your property lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Flint Mountain is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Flint Mountain are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Flint Mountain you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Flint Mountain 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.

What makes a Flint Mountain lease defective?
Leasehold conveyancing in Flint Mountain is not unique. All leases are unique and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain clauses are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts. Repairing obligations to or maintain parts of the property
You will encounter difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Accord Mortgages Ltd, Barnsley Building Society, and Barclays Direct all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, obliging the purchaser to pull out.
