I have a renovated Victorian house in Upper Norwood. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Bank of Ireland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to 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 Upper Norwood and other locations in 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 check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
How does conveyancing in Upper Norwood differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Upper Norwood contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Upper Norwood usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Upper Norwood or who has acted in the same development.

Where a Upper Norwood property is co-owned and one of the proprietors passes away, their name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title.
