I purchased a terraced Georgian property in North Woolwich. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in North Woolwich and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in North Woolwich in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend not grant a loan on this type of premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Nationwide. If you contact us we can check via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in North Woolwich. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I have been recommended a conveyancing solicitor in North Woolwich. I I would like to check if they are on the bank's conveyancing panel. Could you advise?

You should contact the conveyancer and ask them if they are on the bank's panel. If that does not help get in touch with us and we can investigate and revert. Should the firm not be on the lender panel we we can help find a reputable conveyancing solicitor in North Woolwich on the approved list for your lender.
