Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Anerley conveyancing solicitors are appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Barclays?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Barclays completed the survey? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Co-operative are being pedantic. The Anerley solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Co-operative are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I am attracted to a two flats in Anerley both have about fifty years remaining on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There are plenty of short leases in Anerley. The lease is a right to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As a lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease decreases and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this field.

My mum and dad cant seem to find their Anerley property on the HM Land Registry site. They recall that back in the 70’s when they acquired the property there were complications regarding the post code not being recognised in some systems.

Nearly all residences in Anerley should appear. Have you limited your search to simply the postcode. Ordinarily it should mention all the premises within that postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The address could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title deeds which may be with your parent’s bank.
