Even where you use a solicitor outside Swansea you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly.

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.
