Me and my brother have a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Great Yarmouth. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Bank of Scotland to clarify?

It is not completely unheard of in Great Yarmouth and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
