I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Newbridge. I have a mortgage agreed with Kent Reliance. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Newbridge I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Newbridge suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to 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 regarding this.
My wife and I have recently had a bid accepted on our first home in Newbridge, and are now looking to get solicitors appointed. We have utilised the different comparison tools and the quotes are from all across the country. Is it necessary to have a Newbridge solicitor local to our prospective new home? We are fine to do all the communicating electronically, but I assume at some stage we will be required to visit the conveyancer's office to sign contracts?
Usually there is no need to physically visit the office of your conveyancer, they can post any relevant papers to you, which you can sign and send back. Many home movers prefer to instruct a locally based solicitor, but it is not a prerequisite for conveyancing in Newbridge.
