I require expedited conveyancing in Dartmouth Park as I am faced with pressure to exchange contracts within 4 weeks. Thankfully I do not need a mortgage. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Dartmouth Park I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Dartmouth Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Dartmouth Park. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Dartmouth Park - 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.
