There is not much else in Guisborough in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

My partner and I have had DIP from Skipton Building Society who indicated that they will loan up to £117k. When do I need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Guisborough is where we plan to move to.

It would be wise to appoint a lawyer now so that the conveyancing practitioner can open the file so they can commence their AML checks etc. If and when you wish them to start work they will seek a payment on account normally about £175. That would normally be after you have the loan offer from the bank and valuation report, however if you want to expedite the process you can start the ball rolling sooner even though you may be risking some money.
