My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Fenny Stratford. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
