My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Prestwich. I I am struggling to find out if they are accepted on the TSB approved list of lawyers. Can you help?

The first thing to do is contact the conveyancer and enquire whether they can act for the bank. Otherwise please get in touch with TSB who may be able to help.

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the main reason for hinderance in Prestwich house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Prestwich.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Prestwich I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Prestwich for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am selling a house in Cardiff but I am based in Prestwich. My lawyer (who is 200 miles from mehas requested that I sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Prestwich to witness and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Prestwich based
