My wife and I purchased a renovated Victorian property in Shirehampton. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Platform Home Loans Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Shirehampton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Shirehampton is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Shirehampton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Shirehampton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Shirehampton may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
