Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Millom is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Millom are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Millom you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Millom 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 residence.

Am I best advised to instruct a Millom conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can perform the legal formalities but his firm is located a couple of hundredmiles drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Millom conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, present your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Millom know how is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and they were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Millom conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.

Expecting to sign contracts shortly on a basement flat in Millom. Conveyancing lawyers assured me that they are sending me a report within the next couple of days. What should I be looking out for?

Your report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Millom should include some of the following:

    Whether your lease caters for for a slush fund for major repairs? The physical ownership of the property. This may be the flat itself but could also incorporate a roof space or cellar if appropriate. You would want to be sent a copy of the lease Where does the liability rest for maintaining the window frames Rent payments - what is due and what the invoice dates are, and be on notice if this will change in the future
For a comprehensive list of information to be contained in your report on your leasehold property in Millom please ask your conveyancer in ahead of your conveyancing in Millom.

    Is anyone aware of any major works anticipated that will likely add a premium to the maintenance costs? Best to be warned whether window replacement or some other significant cost is due shortly to be shared amongst the tenants and could well dramatically increase the the maintenance fees or require a specific payment.

Developers have put forward a conveyancing practitioner and I've sought an estimate from them. It's nearly two hundred pounds less expensive than my family Millom property lawyer. What's the catch?

Housebuilders frequently have panels of conveyancers who expedite matters and who know the developer’s paperwork and solicitor. Plenty of developers offer an inducement to choose a preferred conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a developer won't put forward a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they demand an exchange inside a month. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested lawyer is that they may prove reluctant to 'push' your interests at the risk of upsetting the housebuilder. Where you have concerns that this may be the situation you should stick with your local Millom conveyancer.
