Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Trefriw I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Trefriw for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage 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 proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass 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 about this matter.
We are one month into a residential purchase having been referred to a firm by the selling agent to execute conveyancing in Trefriw. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
A lawyer would have to be very poor to suggest replacing them. Has the loan offer been sent? If so you will need to advise them of the new contact details and ensure the offer are re-sent. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental fees and complications. That should be your first question of the new solicitors.

What makes a Trefriw lease unmortgageable?
Leasehold conveyancing in Trefriw is not unique. Most leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can result in certain provisions are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the premises A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.
A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. HSBC Bank, Chelsea Building Society, and Aldermore all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to pull out.
