In today’s world there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know exactly where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you can purchase or dispose of your house without any difficulty.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Alfriston I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Alfriston for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Alfriston. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Alfriston - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details 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.
