Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Plymouth costs more?

The conveyancing fees on a leasehold property in Plymouth is frequently greater when contrasted to a freehold transaction. This is because there is an amount of supplemental time necessary in dealing with the landlord and managing agents to collate the information concerning whether the rent and service charges have been discharged and whether there are any major works due in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the block.

Me and my brother have a semi-detached Victorian property in Plymouth. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Barclays Direct. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to 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 Plymouth 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 lenders. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.

I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Plymouth prior to appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor has said that some lenders tend not issue a mortgage on this type of home.
