This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however Lloyds will not agree to this. Why were they approached?
The conveyancing practitioner being on the Lloyds approved list is obliged to advise Lloyds of any variations to the sale price.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Pinner I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Pinner in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the 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 could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass 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 speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Pinner with the aim of speeding up the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Pinner can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ representatives. If you have had any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be nervous about purchasing a property where a dispute is unresolved. You will have to accept that you will have to pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as historic as opposed to unresolved. You believe that you know the number of years left on your lease but it would be wise to verify this via your lawyers. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is below 80 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale.
