You have limited options available to you.

Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Stamfordham conveyancing searches.

Stamfordham conveyancing solicitors as well as nationwide property lawyers accross the UK have an obligation under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to check the identity of any client with a view to ensure that clients are who they say they are.

Proof of the origin of funds is also required under the money laundering regulations as solicitors are required to check that the money you are using to purchase a property (be it the exchange deposit or the full purchase price if you are buying without a mortgage) has come from an acceptable source (such as employment savings) rather than the proceeds of criminal activity.
I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Stamfordham I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Stamfordham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
