Me and my partner are due to exchange on the purchase of a property in Wallasey but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the owner in the sum of £3k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract but TSB are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
Your conveyancing practitioner being on a TSB approved list is obliged to inform TSB of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the reduction to TSB then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, TSB and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Wallasey.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Wallasey I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wallasey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

Is there a distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Wallasey?
Conveyancing - in Wallasey or elsewhere - is the process of legally 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 intending to buy 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 fix the problems before you move in.
