I own a renovated Victorian house in Sandgate. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property.

You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
