About to place an offer on a leasehold property in Aberporth. The property agents tell me that it is the norm for flats in Aberporth to have less than 75 years left on the lease. I am getting a loan with Platform. Is this going to be acceptable if the lease has 70 years to go.

We had selected solicitors based in Aberporth on the Barclays solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental charge for handling the Barclays mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Barclays?

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Aberporth off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Skipton. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
Planning on purchasing a house in Aberporth. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Aberporth lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Aberporth I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Aberporth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
