Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Culcheth conveyancing searches.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Culcheth I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Culcheth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I've found a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a great price which is making it more attractive. I have just been informed that it's a leasehold rather than freehold.
