Default Expired lease issue

My ex partner is remortgaging on our jointly owned house so she can own the house in her own right and release equity to me. The conveyancing has thrown up an issue in that there are 2 entries against the property with the land registry - the freehold which is in joint name, but also a leasehold which is in the name of the previous owner (deceased) although it has expired. Seems our conveyancer at the time made an error unfortunately he is no longer practicing. How can we get rid of the expired leasehold record given it is not in our name?
