I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would prefer to instruct a high street conveyancing solicitor in Upton Park?

How does conveyancing in Upton Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Upton Park contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Upton Park typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Upton Park or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Upton Park I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease.

If you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
