My solicitor has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Ham?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Ham is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Ham are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ham 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 premises.
