I purchased a renovated Victorian property in Thornton Cleveleys. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Thornton Cleveleys and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
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 straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Thornton Cleveleys is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Thornton Cleveleys. Before diving in I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Thornton Cleveleys - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
