Me and my brother have a renovated Victorian property in Flint. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Virgin Money. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking Virgin Money to clarify?
You should 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 Flint 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 mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

I previously advised by my mortgage company that their approved conveyancers work on no completion no fee basis for conveyancing in Flint. I had a purchase fall through and now the solicitors want search fees! They are claiming that the fees are seperate!
in offering "no sale no fee" Flint conveyancing lawyers are waiving their fees for any work carried out. We should make it clear that this does not constitute an insurance scheme. Disbursements aren’t covered – where the solicitor have to pay money out to other people, for example Flint local search fees
