We were just about to exchange contracts for a leasehold flat in Avonmouth. We encountered a problem. Our loan offer with Lloyds TSB Bank expires on 20/9/2021 but the sellers are suggesting a completion date of 22/9/2021. Can one prolong the mortgage expiry date?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Avonmouth is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Avonmouth are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Avonmouth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Avonmouth may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

At last I have had an offer on an flat in Avonmouth agreed to, the owner does nevertheless have an associated purchase. The owners have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Avonmouth. What should be my next step?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is an associated chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Avonmouth conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your lawyer is on the Nottingham approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to press on with searches.
