Flying freeholds in Rochdale are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Rochdale you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rochdale 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 premises.

The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Rochdale should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

A couple of months ago I was informed by my lender that their approved solicitors work on no move no fee basis for conveyancing in Rochdale. I had a purchase fall through yet the solicitors have invoiced for search fees! They are stating that the fees are seperate!

Rochdale conveyancing search charges are disbursements not solicitors costs as these are payable to independent parties.
