At present roughly 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Newton Abbot I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Newton Abbot for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Newton Abbot. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Newton Abbot - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
