I am expecting a OIP from Nationwide this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Purley solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nationwide through the process.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Purley I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Purley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
