I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Nafferton I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Nafferton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent advised that the seller will only move forward if we appoint their recommended conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Nafferton

We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Nafferton conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.

I am due to consider estimates for conveyancing in Nafferton from various solicitor and appoint one. Do I ask them to hold tight until I a suitable house to buy.

We would recommend that you only request your lawyer to open a file and order searches once the sales memo has been sent by the selling agent especially as Nafferton conveyancing searches are costly.
