Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Helsby is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Helsby are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Helsby you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Helsby may determine 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.

I was pointed in your direction by a number of property agents in Helsby to find a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to recommend your site ahead of another?

We refuse to offer any financial incentive for sending work to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
