I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Codsall. I have a mortgage agreed with Virgin Money. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Codsall I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Codsall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
