I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Northolt is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Northolt are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Northolt you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Northolt 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 just appointed agents to market my basement flat in Northolt. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as usual because all rents and maintenance charges should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
