My wife and I have a renovated Georgian property in Birchington. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking Barclays Direct to clarify?

The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3).
