I own a renovated Victorian property in Moorgate. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be 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 Moorgate 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 question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
