I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Piccadilly conveyancing solicitors are chosen. How long does it take for Barclays to forward the offer to the property lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Barclays completed the survey? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
My offer was accepted on a property in Piccadilly on 3/6/2021, valuation was booked 3 days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Yorkshire BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Are Yorkshire BS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
My relative recommended that if I am purchasing in Piccadilly I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Piccadilly I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Piccadilly suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
