I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and must be out of my let out flat in Bridlington by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. How realistic is it to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Bridlington I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease.

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
