Me and my brother have a 4 bedroom Georgian house in North Cornelly. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Nottingham Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Nottingham Building Society to clarify?
You should review 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).
