Me and my brother own a renovated Georgian property in Barnehurst. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and National Westminster Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Barnehurst and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.

The particular law that you refer to provides security of tenure to commercial leaseholders, granting the right to make a request to court for a renewal tenancy and continue in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

My wife and I have just found out that one of the directors of the solicitors undertaking the purchase conveyancing in Barnehurst is an aunty of the vendor. Is this acceptable?

Provided there is no conflict of interest this should be fine. If you are obtaining mortgage finance then the bank may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific instructions on this. For example for RBS (One Account) as of 13/5/2022, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

No, your firm may not act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower. However, your firm may act if a separate fee earner or separate partner within the firm acts for us.
