Some advice if I may. My Cockermouth solicitor is informing me me that she is duty bound toconduct Cockermouth conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. Do I not have any options here?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Cockermouth conveyancing searches.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Cockermouth I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Cockermouth suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
