My wife and I own a renovated Georgian house in Brierley Hill. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Clydesdale. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Clydesdale to clarify?
You should assess 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 Brierley Hill 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 check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
Am I better off to use a Brierley Hill conveyancing practitioner based in the vicinity that I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can perform the conveyancing however his firm is located approximately 350miles drive away.
