Me and my brother purchased a renovated Victorian house in Walkington. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to assess 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Walkington 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 buyers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

I am due to review costs for conveyancing in Walkington from three property lawyer and appoint one. Am I right to get them to hold tight until I I have an offer accepted on a apartment.

We would recommend that you only request your solicitor to start work and apply for searches after the sales memorandum has been issued by the estate agent particularly as Walkington conveyancing searches are costly.
