Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Tiptree is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Tiptree are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tiptree you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tiptree 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.
I need to change lawyers as my Tiptree lawyer is not on the mortgage company's approved list of conveyancing solicitors. Is it advisable to appoint a new law firm?
In the event that you have not formally appointed a solicitor to start work and have just received quotes, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Tiptree that you're thinking of instructing.
