I have finally had an offer on a flat in Great Sankey agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Great Sankey. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Barclays?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Great Sankey conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your lawyer is on the Barclays approved list. Concerning the next stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of home buyers would apply for a home loan with Barclays and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Great Sankey.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Great Sankey I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Great Sankey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign 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 consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
