I wonder if anyone here has encountered this problem? I’m currently trying to buy a house in Hillsborough. The emphasis is on “trying”. The previous owners bought the freehold from Coppen Estates, but there was a fault in the title, as the freehold didn’t cover the part of the house that extends over the common ginnel that gives access to the rear. It’s called a “flying freehold”. After months of inactivity, CE are now refusing to give us a flying freehold, which will probably make it very difficult to sell the house when the time comes, because we’re advised that mortgage companies will not offer a mortgage in these circumstances. So we’re wondering if we should proceed with the sale? Can anyone throw light on this ? Thanks.
