Me and my brother have a renovated Georgian house in Dulwich. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dulwich and other areas of 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 lenders. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Dulwich is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Dulwich are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Dulwich you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Dulwich may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in Dulwich. I happened to land on a web site which looks to be the ideal answer If it is possible to get all formalities completed via email that would be ideal. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

Expecting to complete next month on a studio apartment in Dulwich. Conveyancing lawyers have said that they are sending me a report tomorrow. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

    The unexpired lease term. You should receive guidance as what happens when the lease expires, and informed of the importance of not letting the lease term falling below eighty years Responsibility for maintaining the window frames Does the lease require carpeting throughout thus preventing wood flooring? What remedies are open the freeholder should you breach a clause of your lease?
For a comprehensive list of information to be contained in your report on your leasehold property in Dulwich please ask your conveyancer in ahead of your conveyancing in Dulwich.
