My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Putney Vale. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Leeds Building Society. 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. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

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 Putney Vale and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.
