It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Tunstall. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't track down my title deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Tunstall involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Tunstall I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Tunstall in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
