Me and my brother purchased a terraced Georgian house in Horwich. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and TSB. 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. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to 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 Horwich and other locations in 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 buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Horwich with a loan from Halifax. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about the deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with Halifax. Is this normal?.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Horwich is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Horwich are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Horwich you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Horwich may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
