I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Havering for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Havering. Conveyancing and Santander mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing solicitor in Havering who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
First contact the Land Registry to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Havering conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
