I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years old) in Lydney. Almost all the flats have already been disposed of. Is it really necessary to order neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Lydney?
You are putting yourself at risk in refusing to carrying out Lydney conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would strongly advise in the strongest possible terms that your lawyer conducts them. If time pressures and cost are primary concerns you should consider with your lawyer about the viability of search insurance

I had an offer accepted on a house in Lydney on 22/3/2021, valuation was booked 2 days later, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Kent Reliance and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Are Kent Reliance entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Kent Reliance to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Lydney I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Lydney for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
