Romsey Grove, Lemington Rise, was built by Barratt. The houses were offered for sale originally LEASEHOLD. If you pay a yearly ground rent of around £30, it is still the same. Maybe a previous owner purchased the Freehold?
Your solicitor or Building Society will be able to advise you (but you may have to pay for the information).
Alternatively, you can do a search on the Land Registry website (www.landregisteronline.gov.uk). Again, a small charge may be payable for detailed information (but I think if you key in your property info it tells you whether the house is Freehold or Leasehold on the cover page FOC...). BEWARE - there are many companies who have websites similar to the official LandReg site - and these simply source the information you want and sell it to you for up to ten times its' original cost! The most you should pay for the info is around a fiver (can't get onto the site at the minute or I would tell you exactly.
Hope this is helpful.
