Our conveyancer has uncovered a a problem with the lease for the apartment we are purchasing in Pevensey. The seller’s lawyers have put forward title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our lawyer says that he must be satisfied that the bank is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the lender can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your property lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Pevensey I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Pevensey in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
