My wife and I are soon to complete on the purchase of a house in Bexhill On Sea but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor in the sum of three thousand pounds in the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however Aldermore will not agree to this. Why were they notified?
Your property lawyer being on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise Aldermore of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to report the reduction to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Bexhill On Sea.

My husband and I are spending time looking at houses in Bexhill On Sea and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with RBS.

What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with UBS?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Bexhill On Sea conveyancing search charges, etc).

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Bexhill On Sea I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bexhill On Sea in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
