Me and my brother have a semi-detached Georgian house in Lanchester. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Santander. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. Is it worth asking Santander to clarify?
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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Lanchester 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 enquire as to the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

As co-executor for the estate of my aunt I am selling a residence in Cardiff but live in Lanchester. My lawyer (approximately 235 miles awayhas requested that I sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising.
