My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Selsdon. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should review 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 Selsdon and other areas of 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 check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

I acquired a property in Selsdon last 4/6/2019 and to date it is still not recorded with HM Land Registry. It is part of a development site and my solicitor told me that it can take over a year to complete the registration formalities. I have spoken with the Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Should I be concerned?

It is your conveyancing practitioner that you must turn to here in order to satisfy any issues which have been raised as part of the registration formalities for your Selsdon property. Normal Selsdon conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the seller's property lawyer that they will assist in resolving any requirements raised by HMLR so it may be a case of seeking to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
