I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Dereham conveyancing practitioners have been instructed. How long does it take for Yorkshire BS to send the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Yorkshire BS completed the survey? Have you informed Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Dereham building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Dereham conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?

The lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 remaining.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Dereham I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Dereham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Should I be concerned by brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Dereham conveyancing company?

As is the case with lots of service providers, often input from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest lawyers to use. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to choose your own lawyer. You need to be aware that most mortgage providers have an approved list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.
