I have a semi-detached Georgian house in Heswall. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should read 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 Heswall and other locations in 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 purchasers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandfather I am selling a residence in Swansea but reside in Heswall. My conveyancer (approximately 235 kilometers from mehas requested that I sign a stat dec ahead of completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Heswall to witness and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or qualified solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Heswall based
