I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Colwyn Bay. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Colwyn Bay - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Similar flats in Colwyn Bay with an extended lease are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2081

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

My partner and I intend to purchase our first home in Colwyn Bay. Conveyancing practitioner already chosen. The broker suggested that a survey is not appropriate as the house is just 20 yrs old.

You would be well advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the property is more than 10 years old the property will be without a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may suffice. They will highlight any apparent problems and suggest additional investigation where appropriate. Where there are any signs of problems get a full Building Survey from the beginning.
