Me and my brother own a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Newton Ferrers. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Bank of Ireland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching 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 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 Newton Ferrers 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 mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
