I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel lawyer as I would prefer to instruct a Rothbury based conveyancing firm?

My wife and I own a terraced Victorian house in Rothbury. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Clydesdale. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Clydesdale to clarify?
You need to 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). It is not completely unheard of in Rothbury and other areas of 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 buyers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
