You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a home loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Otley conveyancing searches.

I am purchasing my first flat in Otley with a loan from Barclays Direct. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Otley I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Otley for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan that many years may be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months 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 term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

My father has recommend that I instruct his lawyers for conveyancing in Otley. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Otley conveyancing lawyer the best way to find a conveyancing practitioner is to get guidance from friends or family who have previously instructed the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.
