I have a terraced Georgian house in Walthamstow. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Barclays . I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be 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 Walthamstow 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 mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
How does conveyancing in Walthamstow differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Walthamstow approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Walthamstow usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Walthamstow or who has acted in the same development.
My step-father has suggested that I use his lawyers for conveyancing in Walthamstow. Do I follow his recommendation?

Are there frequently found deficiencies that you come across in leases for Walthamstow properties?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Walthamstow. All leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Insurance obligations Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
A defective lease will likely cause problems when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Accord Mortgages Ltd, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and Clydesdale all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to pull out.
