Yesterday I discovered 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. Runcorn is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Runcorn are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Runcorn you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Runcorn 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.

The benefit of a local Runcorn conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and they were content that should outweigh using an unknown Runcorn conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.
