Completed the sale of my flat in Brent Park last April but our buyer keeps calling me to moan that their conveyancer needs to hear from myconveyancer. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?
Following your disposal your conveyancer is duty bound to send the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Where relevant, your solicitor should also confirm that the mortgage has been paid off to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion requirements just for conveyancing in Brent Park.

I own a semi-detached Edwardian property in Brent Park. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Nottingham Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Brent Park and other areas of 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 lenders. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Brent Park before appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold property.
