I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Llanarth is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Llanarth are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Llanarth 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 Llanarth 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 residence.
My fiance and I may need to rent out our Llanarth ground floor flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We used a Llanarth conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in Llanarth do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.

It would be wise to discover if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease. For instance it is very common in Llanarth leases that pets are not allowed in in a block in Llanarth. If you like the flatin Llanarth however your dog is not allowed to move with you then you will be presented with a hard choice. Many Llanarth leasehold apartments will incur a service bill for maintenance of the block invoiced by the freeholder. Where you acquire the flat you will have to meet this contribution, usually in instalments throughout the year. This can be anything from a couple of hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large communal areas. There will also be a rentcharge for you to pay annual, this is usually not a large amount, say around £25-£75 but you should to enquire it because on occasion it could be surprisingly expensive. The prefered form of lease arrangement is a share of the freehold. In this situation the tenants benefit from control and notwithstanding that a managing agent is often employed if it is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent is directed by the tenants.
