Me and my brother purchased a renovated Victorian property in Maltby. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Halifax. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should read 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 Maltby 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 purchasers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

I want to let out my leasehold flat in Maltby. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Is permission from the freeholder required?
The lease dictates relations between the landlord and you the flat owner; in particular, it will say if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Maltby do not contain strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the flat. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.

My partner and I have recently had an offer agreed on a apartment and had meeting on Tuesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They advised us that when it comes to selecting a conveyancer that unless they are on their approved list of lawyers then we will have to pay out a further charge of about two hundred pounds. This is because they will then have to appoint a conveyancer to act on their behalf as well as the one we select for ourselves and we assume responsibility for their costs. I have requested Leeds Building Society to provide me with a list so I can obtain estimates only from their approved conveyancers but was told that I need to check with each individual lawyer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a list online?
You should ask Leeds Building Society what their criteria for joining their panel is for a conveyancer.Then ask the lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on loans for Leeds Building Society in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just double check with Leeds Building Society. Alternatively please utilise our search facility and we should be able to find you a conveyancer in Maltby on the approved list for Leeds Building Society.
