Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Lifton is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Lifton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Lifton you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Lifton 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 premises.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent has warned us that the seller will only issue a contract if we instruct their chosen solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Lifton

It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Lifton conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by HQ.
