I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Abertillery. Before diving in I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Abertillery - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

My wife and I have an offer in principle from Barnsley Building Society who have advised that they will lend up to £400k. When do I need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Abertillery is where we are buying.

It would be wise to appoint a property lawyer now requesting that they generate a file for you. This will enable: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s conveyancing practitioner to send out the draft paperwork. That being said, do not instruct your property lawyer to start searches until you have your valuation report via Barnsley Building Society and you are content to move forward.
