I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Hermitage is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Hermitage are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hermitage you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hermitage 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.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Hermitage. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as usual because all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
