I am purchasing my first flat in Port Isaac with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Port Isaac is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Port Isaac are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Port Isaac 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 Port Isaac 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 property.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Port Isaac. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Port Isaac - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

    Is the freehold owned jointly by the leaseholders? The best form of lease structure is a share of the freehold. In this scenario the lessees enjoy being in charge if their destiny and even though a managing agent is frequently retained if it is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their maintenance charge payments?

My boyfriend is buying a basement flat in Port Isaac. He has received a fee estimate by the lawyer recommended by the estate agents totaling £1156 . It was seven years ago since I sold and purchased a property and the fee was £450. Have fees really gone up that much?

We would recommend that you call two or three local Port Isaac conveyancing firms seeking estimates. It is advisable to base your decision not only on cost, but on promptness and on how comprehensive the response is.
