Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. New Inn is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in New Inn are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside New Inn you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in New Inn 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.
I have recently realised that I have Seventy years remaining on my flat in New Inn. I now wish to extend my lease but my freeholder is can not be found. What are my options?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to locate the freeholder. In some cases a specialist would be useful to carry out a search and prepare a report to be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer both on investigating the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing New Inn.

The conveyancing solicitors carrying out our conveyancing in New Inn has sent papers to review that state the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all houses in New Inn are registered?
Whilst most properties in New Inn are now registered with the Land Registry there are still some that are unregistered. Any property in New Inn that has been remortgaged since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HMLR under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a New Inn property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of New Inn conveyancing practitioners will be familiar with such matters but if any uncertainty exists the usual recommendation presently seems to be for the vendor’s solicitor to undertake the registration formalities first and then sell - this this chain of events will result in a significant delay.
