I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Cowley bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Cowley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your property lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

How does conveyancing in Cowley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Cowley contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because developers in Cowley tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Cowley or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Cowley I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Cowley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

My step-father has recommend that I instruct his lawyers for conveyancing in Cowley. Do I take his advice?
