Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Newton Heath is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

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.
Should I instruct a Newton Heath conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can handle the legal work however her office is a couple of hundredkilometers away.
