I have a terraced Edwardian property in Bethnal Green. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking Norwich and Peterborough Building Society to clarify?
You need to 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 Bethnal Green and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Bethnal Green. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as normal given that all rents and service charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
