When it comes to conveyancing in Crook getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips.

It is unclear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Crook bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Crook conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
As long as the conveyancer is on the bank approved list, she or he must comply with the CML Handbook specifications for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

How does conveyancing in Crook differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Crook contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Crook tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Crook or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Crook I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Crook in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign 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 solicitor regarding this matter.
