Me and my partner are about to exchange buying a house in Sandhurst but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor in the sum of £2k taking the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract however Kent Reliance will not agree to this. Should they have been informed?
The solicitor being on a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Kent Reliance of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to disclose the price change to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Sandhurst I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sandhurst for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
