I have a semi-detached Victorian property in Cotham. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Aldermore. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Aldermore to clarify?

You need to review 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Cotham and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Cotham is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cotham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cotham 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 property.
