I can't really find anything else in Lancashire in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you.

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

My folks cant seem to find their Lancashire property on the HMLR website. They recall that back in the 70’s when they purchased the bungalow there were complications concerning the address not being recognised in some systems.

The vast majority of premises in Lancashire should show up. Have you attempted a search to simply the postcode. Usually it should reveal all the premises inside that postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought sixty years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The address may still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title papers which might be with your parent’s bank.
