I have been told that property searches are a common cause of obstruction in Saffron Walden conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

Searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Saffron Walden.
I own a semi-detached Georgian house in Saffron Walden. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Lloyds TSB Bank. 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 Lloyds TSB Bank to clarify?
You need to 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 Saffron Walden and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.
