Before the recession most lenders had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Exmouth conveyancing firms would have been on many mortgage company panels. The financial services regulator in 2010 carried out a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which concluded: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders are increasingly seeing more data from law firms concerning their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as establishing certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of transactions. Many Exmouth conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have Unblemished track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Exmouth I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Exmouth for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you require a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass 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 about this matter.
