Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Market Weighton solicitor - who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Market Weighton postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Market Weighton.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Market Weighton I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Market Weighton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises 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 existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share document. Organising a duplicate share certificate is often a lengthy process and delays many a Market Weighton conveyancing deal. Where a duplicate share certificate is necessary, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (if relevant) for this as soon as possible. If you have had conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and pay any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic as opposed to ongoing.
