Me and my brother purchased a semi-detached Victorian house in Sandbach. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Leeds Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Sandbach 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 lenders. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Sandbach is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Sandbach are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Sandbach you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Sandbach may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
