I am not well enough to travel far from Upminster. Please clarify why all Upminster conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all lender panels?
As inequitable as it may seem for lenders to limit who can act for them, from the public’s or lawyer’s viewpoint, the flip side is that mortgage companies are becoming ever more anxious and consider it vital to protect them from illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Upminster I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Upminster suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 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 with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Upminster?
Conveyancing - in Upminster or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re purchasing and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to remedy the defects prior to you move in.
