Me and my brother own a renovated Victorian property in Newbridge. Conveyancing lawyer 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 thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to read 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 Newbridge and other locations in 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 lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Newbridge is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Newbridge you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

We don’t make any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback?
