Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Sherwood who acted for me two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Nationwide Building Society. It looks as though am now being charged double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Sherwood I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sherwood in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could 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 lawyer regarding this matter.
