I have a renovated Georgian property in Huntingdon. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Halifax. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should assess 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 Huntingdon and other areas of 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 buyers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.

In relation to leasehold conveyancing in Huntingdon what are the most common lease defects?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Huntingdon. Most leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    A duty to insure the building Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.

A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Yorkshire Building Society, Bank of Scotland, and Aldermore all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.

I own a studio flat in Huntingdon, conveyancing was carried out in 2009. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease?
