Me and my brother purchased a terraced Victorian house in Hounslow. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Clydesdale. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. 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 as there may be mention of a lease.

How does conveyancing in Hounslow differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Hounslow come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Hounslow usually buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hounslow or who has acted in the same development.
