My wife and I purchased a renovated Edwardian property in Carshalton Beeches. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Barnsley Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Barnsley Building Society to clarify?
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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Carshalton Beeches and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Carshalton Beeches is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
I am a negotiator for a long established estate agent office in Carshalton Beeches where we have witnessed a number of flat sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Carshalton Beeches conveyancing firms. Could you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
Having spent months of dialogue we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Carshalton Beeches. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Carshalton Beeches conveyancing firm who can help.
