Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Helston is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Helston are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Helston 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 Helston 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.

Given that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a property in Helston I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor concerning theconveyancing ahead of giving the go ahead to the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer due to be carrying out your conveyancing in Helston.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important person, not a case number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Helston should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

I own a leasehold house in Helston. Conveyancing and Clydesdale mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in Helston who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?

First make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Helston conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I bought a studio flat in Helston, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2012. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar properties in Helston with a long lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2072

With 50 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
