We're in Goodrich, First timers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Lloyds , and our solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Goodrich I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease.

If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Goodrich. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Goodrich - 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.

Check with your lender that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely require a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would be required to have owned the residence for a couple of years before you are eligible to extend the lease.
