I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Longhope. Almost all the appartments have already been sold. Is it really necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Longhope?
You would be putting yourself at risk in refusing to carrying out Longhope conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would strongly advise in no uncertain terms that you have them. If time pressures and driving down costs are top of your issues you should discuss with your lawyer about the possibility of search insurance
I used Wolstenholmes a few years past for my conveyancing in Longhope. Now, I need my files but the law firm has closed. What do I do?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Longhope I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Longhope for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may 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 current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Considering it’s a sale only, 475 + VAT would be about the cheapest for sale conveyancing in Longhope.
