Is it usual for Nottingham to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Middlewich is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nottingham have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Me and my brother own a renovated Edwardian property in Middlewich. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Halifax. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address.

You should assess 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 Middlewich and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
