I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address.

How does conveyancing in Chigwell differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Chigwell approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Chigwell typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Chigwell or who has acted in the same development.
