I purchased a 4 bedroom Georgian property in Highams Park. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. 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 as there may be 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 Highams Park and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Highams Park before instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to issue a loan on this type of premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can look into this further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Highams Park. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Highams Park. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Highams Park - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I have given up trying to purchase the freehold in Highams Park. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

if there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to make a decision on the premium.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Highams Park premises is 48 Greenleaf Road in December 2009. the lessees sought to exercise their right to purchase the freehold from the landlord by way of collective enfranchisement in accordance with the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993.The landlord could not be found.A vesting order was granted from the Bow County Court on 10 September 2007 (Claim No: 8BO04141). The Tribunal held that the premium to be paid was £3,850 This case affected 2 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 104 years.
