Me and my brother own a semi-detached Georgian house in Wimborne. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Accord Mortgages Ltd to clarify?
You need to 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wimborne and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
