I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Horfield conveyancing solicitors were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Nottingham?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nottingham completed the valuation? Have you informed Nottingham as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Horfield. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £225.

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Lloyds panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Horfield I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Horfield for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months 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 with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
