Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Georgian property in South Cave. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Bank of Ireland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching 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 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 South Cave 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 purchasers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in South Cave I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in South Cave suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
