My partner and I are in the process of viewing apartments in Redbridge and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with HSBC.

It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with HSBC, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Redbridge and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Redbridge. We have lived in Redbridge for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Redbridge I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Redbridge in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
