My wife and I have a terraced Georgian house in Bedminster. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read 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 Bedminster and other areas of 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 lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Bedminster is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Bedminster are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bedminster you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bedminster 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.

Is it simple use the search facility to select a conveyancing lawyer in Bedminster on the approved list for my lender?

Step one is to pick a lender such as Birmingham Midshires, Coventry Building Society or Britannia then type in your location for instance Bedminster. Conveyancing firms in Bedminster and beyond should be shown.
