We're in Woodford, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Coventry BS , and our lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Woodford I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Woodford in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
