Me and my brother have a semi-detached Edwardian house in Petts Wood. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Nottingham Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Nottingham Building Society to clarify?

You should review 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Petts Wood and other areas of 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 lenders. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
