I purchased a terraced Edwardian property in Flint. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Alliance & Leicester . I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to review 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 Flint and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Flint is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Flint are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Flint you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Flint may determine 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.

We are in the midst of selling our flat in Flint. Conveyancing is fine but we are being charged an extortionate amount from the landlord. So far we have issued a cheque for £275 for a leasehold management pack and then a further £118 for responses to questions supplied by the purchaser's solicitor.

Neither you or your conveyancing practitioner will have any say over the level of the bill for this information however the average costs for the information for Flint leasehold premises is £395. For Flint conveyancing sales it is customary for the vendor to pay for these charges. The landlord or their agents are not duty bound to address such questions most will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no legislation that mandates fixed fees for administrative tasks. There is no prescriptive time limit by which they are required to provide the information.
