I own a renovated Georgian property in Trimdon. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should 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 Trimdon 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 purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.

I'm buying my first flat in Trimdon with a mortgage from Bank of Ireland. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Trimdon is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Trimdon are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Trimdon you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Trimdon 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 residence.

Is it best to instruct a Trimdon conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can handle the conveyancing but they are based a couple of hundredmiles drive away.

The benefit of a high street Trimdon conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were happy that must trump using an unknown Trimdon conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being round the corner.
