My wife and I have a renovated Victorian property in Acklam. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Virgin Money. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to read 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 Acklam and other locations in 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 mortgage companies.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Acklam is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Acklam are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Acklam you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Acklam 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 residence.

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Acklam conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.
