I have a terraced Victorian property in Parkwood Springs. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should read 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Parkwood Springs and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
How does conveyancing in Parkwood Springs differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Parkwood Springs come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because house builders in Parkwood Springs typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Parkwood Springs or who has acted in the same development.

As co-executor for the will of my uncle I am disposing of a property in Newport but I am based in Parkwood Springs. My solicitor (who is 250 miles from merequires that I sign a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising.
