Completed the sale of my flat in Birmingham last January but the buyer keeps whats apping daily complaining that her conveyancer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Birmingham I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease.

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted.

An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
