You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Higher Kinnerton conveyancing searches.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Higher Kinnerton is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Higher Kinnerton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Higher Kinnerton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Higher Kinnerton 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 property.

I own a leasehold house in Higher Kinnerton. Conveyancing and Britannia mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing practitioner in Higher Kinnerton who previously acted has long since retired. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Higher Kinnerton conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
Higher Kinnerton Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Questions you should consider before Purchasing
The majority of Higher Kinnerton leasehold flats will have a service charge for the upkeep of the building set by the freeholder. Should you purchase the apartment you will have to pay this liability, usually quarterly throughout the year. This could vary from a couple of hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large common grounds. There will also be a ground rent for you to pay annual, this is usually not a large figure, say approximately £50-£100 but you need to enquire as on occasion it could be surprisingly expensive. Its a good idea to find out as much as possible concerning the managing agents as they will either make life much easier or uncomfortable. As the owner of a leasehold property you are often at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to daily issues such as the upkeep of the common parts. Enquire of prospective neighbours if they are happy with them. Finally, be sure you know the dates that you are obliged pay the maintenance charge to the appropriate party and precisely what you get for your money.
