I have a semi-detached Edwardian property in Blackwall. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Nottingham Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. 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 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 Blackwall 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 buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
About to purchase a new build apartment in Blackwall. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Planning to exchange soon on a leasehold property in Blackwall. Conveyancing solicitors inform me that they will have a report out to me within the next couple of days. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?
Your report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Blackwall should include some of the following:
Details of the parties to the lease, e.g. these could be the leaseholder, superior lessor, landlord Are you allowed to have a pet in the flat? Responsibility for maintaining the window frames You need to be informed what constitutes a Nuisance in the lease You should receive a copy of the lease
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a Blackwall conveyancing firm to help?
in cases where there is a missing landlord or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to arrive at the price.
