My buyer's mortgage company, Clydesdale are being difficult. The Skelmersdale solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Edwardian property in Skelmersdale. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Yorkshire Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Skelmersdale and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Skelmersdale I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Skelmersdale for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could 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 with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
