    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Histon I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Histon in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I'm converting the mortgage on my current property to a buy to let loan with Skipton Building Society and intend to use the remaining equity as a deposit on a second property. The area we are interested in is Histon. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of mortgage companies and link together the two deals?

Make use of our comparison tool on this site to be sure that the lawyers are approved by both lenders. On the basis that they are your lawyer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two transactions but you should talk with you lawyer and make clear your desired outcome and requirements.

Am I better off to go with a Histon conveyancing lawyer based in the area that I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can carry out the conveyancing however his firm is located approximately 350miles away.

The primary upside of using a local Histon conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Histon know how is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and on the whole were happy that should surpass using an unknown Histon conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being round the corner.
