We are due to complete on the purchase of a property in Attleborough but as a result of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the owner of six thousand pounds by way of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but Nationwide are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
Your property lawyer being on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Nationwide of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to notify the reduction to Nationwide then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nationwide and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Attleborough.

I'm the single recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Attleborough. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in November. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this obligation principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
I'm in the process of looking at apartments in Attleborough and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have my conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a mortgage with Lloyds.
It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the EA. As you are taking out a mortgage with Lloyds, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Attleborough I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Attleborough in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
