I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Brixton I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Brixton 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 home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years 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 term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Am I right to be suspicious about brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Brixton conveyancing firm?

As is the case with lots of professional services, often input from family and friends can be most helpful. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all suggest lawyers to instruct. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to choose your own conveyancer. Don't forget that many lenders specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.
