About to place an offer on a leasehold flat in Temple. The property agents tell me that it is usual for flats in Temple to have less than 75 years remaining. I am expecting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland. Is this going to be acceptable if the lease has Seventy One years to go.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are getting a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Bank of Ireland have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 25/5/2024 the requirements read as follows :

Yes, subject to a minimum lease term of 85 years. The unexpired lease term must be at least the mortgage term plus 45 years. See also 5.14.9

I am purchasing a house and the lawyer has identified Chancel Repair for which the property could be obligated to contribute to because it falls into the area of such a church. She has recommended insurance. Is this really warranted for conveyancing in Temple

Unless a previous acquisition of the house completed after 12 October 2013 you could expect conveyancing practitioners delivering conveyancing in Temple to continue to advocate a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Temple I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Temple in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a leasehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the local agent to perform conveyancing in Temple. I am am very disappointed with the quality of service. Could you help me find new solicitors?

A lawyer would need to be really bad to suggest replacing them. Has the loan offer been sent? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the new solicitor and have the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid escalating expenses and complications. That should be your first question of the new solicitors.
