I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Driffield. Before I get started I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Driffield - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

    For most Driffield leaseholds the outlay for major works tend not to be incorporated into the service charges, albeit that a few managing agents in Driffield ask leaseholders to pay into a sinking fund and this is used to offset against larger works.

We are midway through buying a property in Driffield. Conveyancing solicitor has phoned to say the title is "Leasehold". Does this impact our Natwest valuation?

Driffield conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The key consideration here is the unexpired lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's virtually freehold, so it shouldn't impact the saleability significantly.

On the flip side, if it's, say, 50 years it will have a adverse effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The length of lease and ground rent will be set out in the lease which should be made available to your property lawyer.
