We were just about to sign contracts for a leasehold flat in Finchampstead. We encountered a stumbling block. The loan offer with TSB expires on 5/3/2021 but the vendors are putting forward a completion date of 9/3/2021. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage expiry date?

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Finchampstead is more expensive?
Finchampstead leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
I can see plenty of here about conveyancing in Finchampstead but can you isolate your top tip for selecting the right conveyancer in Finchampstead
It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Finchampstead conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Can you point me to a directory of TSB panel solicitors in Finchampstead on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

We had selected solicitors locally in Finchampstead on the RBS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a separate charge for the legal aspects of the RBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by RBS?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by RBS but by your Finchampstead lawyer. Numerous firms on the RBS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I am buying my first flat in Finchampstead with a mortgage from HSBC Bank. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this extras as it would affect my mortgage with HSBC Bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Finchampstead I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Finchampstead in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
