We had instructed conveyancers locally in Rayners Lane on the Aldermore solicitor panel. They have just billed me a separate amount for the legal aspects of the Aldermore mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Aldermore?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Aldermore but by your Rayners Lane conveyancer. Some firms on the Aldermore panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Rayners Lane I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Rayners Lane suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
