It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Northamptonshire. Conveyancing lawyers have now been instructed on the sale but I can't track down my title deeds. Is this a major issue?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the lender or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Northamptonshire relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Northamptonshire I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Northamptonshire suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension 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 consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
