I have a semi-detached Edwardian house in Linslade. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should assess 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Linslade and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

I am buying a new build apartment in Linslade. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Linslade

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Linslade ahead of appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some banks tend not grant a mortgage on such a property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail 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 used to dealing with flying freeholds in Linslade. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Linslade especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Linslade.
