The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

The first thing to do is ensure that your lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Skipton and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to press on with searches.
