Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Speke is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Speke are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Speke you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Speke 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 premises.
