Me and my brother purchased a renovated Georgian property in Halstead. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Britannia. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking Britannia 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Halstead and other locations in 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 check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
