My wife and I have a renovated Georgian house in Gainsborough. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and The Mortgage Works. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking The Mortgage Works to clarify?

You should 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Gainsborough and other areas of 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 enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.

I opted to have a survey done on a property in Gainsborough in advance of instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks may refuse to grant a loan on this type of home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Gainsborough.
