I own a renovated Georgian property in Great Yarmouth. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Santander. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Santander 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Great Yarmouth and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Great Yarmouth ahead of instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor advised that some lenders will refuse to grant a loan on this type of premises.

Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the lender approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
