You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP.

Planning on purchasing a flat in Stanley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Stanley conveyancer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Stanley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Stanley contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Stanley usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Stanley or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Stanley I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Stanley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
